PRIDE II update 

Trustee pledges $400,000 to Elon 

An Elon College trustee has made a 
pledge of $400,000 to the PRIDE II 
Campaign, one of the largest single 
contributions in the 94-year history 
of the hberaJ arts institution. 

The trustee, who wishes to remain 
anonymous, said the funds will be 
used for capital improvements at the 
college, possibly toward the 
construction of the proposed fine 
arts center. 

"The PRIDE II Campaign is 
critical to the future success of Elon 
College," the trustee said. "If Elon 

is to maintain academic excellence 
and continue to attract talented 
students, the school must continue 
in a position of financial health. 

"The PRIDE II Campaign will 
ensure that Elon College remains 
independent and competitive among 
institutions of higher education," he 

PRIDE II, an acronym for 
"Providing Resources for 
Institutional Development at Elon," 
is a three-year, $5.7 million 
campaign, the most ambitious fund 
raising effort in the history of the 
college. With over 2,700 men and 

women from about half the states, 
Elon is the third largest private 
college in North Carolina. 

The campaign will generate funds 
for endowment, campus 
improvements, ongoing expenses, 
and the construction of a new fine 
arts center. The campaign was 
publicly announced in mid-October. 

Elon College President Fred 
Young said the gift will probably be 
used in the construction of the $2.2 
million fine arts center, which will 
eventually house the college's music, 
drama and art departments. 

Construction of the center is 
expected to begin next year in the 
area of the present soccer field and 
track, which will be moved to the 
northern edge of the 150-acre 

"This gift, one of the largest in 
the history of Elon College, 
represents a generous gift to 
thousands of young people who will 
attend Elon in the years ahead in 
an effort to improve their lives," 
Young said. "The donor has made 
an investment in our future, and all 
of us associated with Elon College 
greatly appreciate his generosity." 






An Alamance County textile firm 
has donated $80,000 to the PRIDE 
II Campaign at Elon College to 
challenge other county donors to 
support the fimd raising drive. 

Glen Raven Mills Inc. will offer 
$1,000 to Elon College for every 
gift or pledge of $1,000 or more- 
that any individual, company or 
organization in Alamance County 
makes to the PRIDE II Campaign, 
up to $80,000 toward the campaign 

The challenge gift was 
aimounced recently at a kick-off 
luncheon of the Alamance 

Campaign, a mini-campaign within 
the PRIDE II schedule of events. 
PRIDE II, an acronym for 
"Providing Resources for 
Institutional Development at 
Elon," is a $5.7 million capital 
campaign, the largest in the history 
of the institution. Funds generated 
through the campaign will be used 
for endowment, current expenses, 
campus improvements, and the 
construction of a new fine arts 

Elon College President Fred 
Young said the challenge was 
realistic but would require 

considerable effort on the part of 
volimteers in the county. 

"The success of this campaign 
will depend on the generosity of 
many groups, and the participation 
of the corporate community in 
Alamance County is critical," 
Young said. "It is refreshing that 
companies such as Glen Raven 
Mills recognize the importance of 
this institution to community life." 

Over 200 volunteers will call on 
businesses and individuals during 
the month of February in an effort 
to meet the challenge offered by 
Glen Raven.

officially announced to Alamance 
County business leaders at a 
luncheon on the campus, 
Wednesday, January 18. 

Recruitment for the 36-hour 
degree program begins immediately 
with the first applicants to be 
accepted for fall, 1984. 


$1.5 million 

The 36 members of the Elon 
College Board of Trustees have 
contributed $1.5 million to the 
PRIDE 11 capital campaign, a 
figure equal to more than V* of the 
campaign's total goal of $5.7 

"This outstanding level of 
support is a further indication of 
the depth of commitment our 
Board has to Elon College," said 
Dr. Jo Watts Williams, vice 
president for development. "Their 
fmancial support is but one of the 
ways they support Elon, and we 
are truly grateful to them." 

The 100% participation of the 
Board made them the first 
organized group to complete their 
segment of the campaign. 

PRIDE II is an acronym for 
"Providing Resources for 
Institutional Development at 
Elon." The campaign seeks funds 
to construct a fine arts center, 
endowments for scholarships and 
professorships, current operating 
expenses, and money for campus 

Elon College President Fred 
Young praised the trustees for their 
leadership role in the campaign, 
the most ambitious fund-raising 
effort in the private college's 
94-year history. 

"Elon College trustees give 
generously of their time, at their 
own expense, in providing 
government for Elon College, 
which has a budget in excess of $1 1 
million a year. This is a major 
responsibility. The additional 
support by trustees through the 
PRIDE II campaign indicates their 
firm commitment to higher 
education and to Elon College. We 
are proud to have each one of 
them associated with Elon," Dr. 
Young said. 

Duke Power 
gives to 
Fine Arts 

The Elon College PRIDE II 
Campaign received another major 
boost with a gift of $25,000 from 
Duke Power Company. The funds 
will be used toward the construction 
of the proposed $2.2 million fine 
arts center. 

PRIDE II, a $5.7 million, 
three-year capital campaign, will 
raise funds for campus 
improvements, ongoing expenses, 
and endowments and scholarships, 
and the construction of the fine arts 

The center will be built beside the 
lake on the northern part of the 
campus, in the area now utilized for 
the track and soccer field. It will 
house faculty offices, classrooms, 
practice rooms, a theater, art 
gallery, band room, and related 

Dr. Jo Watts William, vice 
president for development, praised 
Ed Hartgrove, manager of the 
Burlington Duke Power office, as 
being instrumental in securing the 
gift for Elon. 

"Ed Hartgrove is a leading 

businessman in Alamance County, 
and this generous gift from Duke 
Power Company represents the faith 
the business community has in Elon. 
Without the support, our campaign 
could not succeed. We are grateful 
to Duke Power Company and to Ed 
for this leading gift," she said. 

NCNB gift 
to PRIDE 11 

North Carolina National Bank has 
made a commitment of $20,000 to 
the Elon College PRIDE II 
Campaign. PRIDE is an acronym 
for "Providing Resources for 
Institutional Development at Elon." 

Dr. Jo Watts Williams, vice 
president for development, said the 
funds will probably be used in the 
construction of the proposed fine 
arts center. 

PRIDE II seeks funds for the fine 
arts center, scholarships and 
endowments, operating expenses, 
and campus improvements. The 
campaign goal is $5.7 million over 
the next three years. 

"NCNB is a corporate leader in 
Alamance County and North 
Carolina," Dr. Williams noted. 
"This generous gift from a large 
financial institution represents a 
great deal of faith in the continued 
improvement of the economy and in 
the ability of Elon College to meet 
its goal." 

Don McCorkle, city executive 
officer and senior vice president of 
NCNB, said the bank is committed 
to cultural improvements such as the 
fine arts center would bring to 
Alamance County. 

Plans call for the fine arts center 
to be constructed at the present site 
of the track and soccer field. 

First Federal 
makes Fine 
Arts pledge 

First Federal Savings and Loan 
Association has made a pledge of 
$20,000 toward the PRIDE II 
Campaign at Elon College. The gift 
will go toward the construction of 
the proposed fine arts center. 

PRIDE II is a three-year, $5.7 
million capital campaign, the largest 
in the liberal arts college's history. 
Funds will be solicited for ongoing 
expenses, campus improvements, 
scholarships and endowments, and 
the fine arts center, expected to cost 
approximately $2.2 million. 

The center, to be built on the lake 
at the site of the present track, will 
eventually house the music, art and 
drama programs at the 94-year-oId 
coeducational institution. A new 
track and soccer field is nearing 
completion near the Newsome 
Field baseball stadium. 

Bob Gaydon, president of the 
savings and loan, said the 
association has supported Elon 
College programs for years because 
of the college's outstanding 
academic reputation and impact on 
Alamance County. 

"First Federal Savings and Loan 
Association, like Elon College, is 
service-oriented and committed to 
improving the living environment in 
Alamance County," Gaydon said. 
"The fine arts center will soon 
become the cultural center of the 
county, and we are pleased to be a 
part of this ambitious project," 

Dr. Jo Watts Williams, vice 
president for development at Elon, 
said the gift, one of several from 
financial institutions serving the 
county, will enhance the fine arts 
program the college offers students 
and improve the cultural offerings in 
the county. 

Wachovia endows fund 

Wachovia Bank & Trust Company, 
N.A. has made a major gift of 
$25,000 to PRIDE II, the three-year 
capital gifts campaign at Elon 

Robert L. Saffelle Jr., senior vice 
president of the financial institution, 
said the gift will endow the 
Wachovia Fund for Excellence at 
Elon College. Income from the fund 
will be used to enhance the college. 

Dr. Jo Watts Williams, vice 
president for development at Elon, 
said the Wachovia gift will improve 
several areas of the college. 

"As an endowment, this fund will 
continue providing resources each 
year as needs arise," Williams 
noted. "We are grateful to 
Wachovia Bank and Trust Company 
for this generous support." 

Robert L. Saffelle, Jr., senior vice president of Wachovia Bank & Trust 
Company, N.A., shakes bands with Eion President Fred Young as William J. 
Leatb, cbalrman of the Wachovia board looks on. The bank's executives 
announced a $25,000 gift to the PRIDE II campaign.

Dr. Carole Chase, professor of

employees volunteered their time to 
work in the campaign and solicit 
their colleagues. The campaign was 

completed in less than six weeks. 

"Gifts were made to the fine arts

prof authors 
new book 

The publication of Principles of 
Accoanting, Third Edition is the 
latest in a series of textbooks that 
has made Dr. Allen B. Sanders a 
well-lcnown author all over the 
United States. The first two editions 
were adopted by over 100 schools, 
including impressive institutions 
such ac New York University, 
Auburn and the University of South 
Carohna, and were used by more 
than 100,000 students nationwide. 

Sanders, professor of business 
administration and accounting at 
Elon College, penned the book with 
co-authors Isaac N. Reynolds, 
professor of accounting at the 
University of North Carolina-Chapel 
Hill, and A. Douglas Hillman, 
professor of accounting and 
computer information systems at 
Drake University. Principles of 
Accounting, Third Edition has been 
carefully developed as the focus of a 
total teaching and learning package 
for the first-year accounting course. 

An unprecedented development 
effort helped create the new edition. 
"We had nearly 40 reviewers from 
large universities, small private 
colleges and community colleges all 
over the country to review the 
manuscript," Dr. Sanders said. 
"They made comments, suggested 
better ways of saying things and 
pointed out errors. Also, six 
instructors from colleges where the 
previous editions were used kept 
user-diaries, measuring classroom 
performance and student response. 
Our rewriting was based on these 
personal comments and findings. 
Rewriting is a constant process."

In addition to correcting errors 
and rephrasing, many other factors 
account for the extensive rewriting 
involved in Principles of 
Accounting, Third Edition. The 
Financial Accounting Standards 
Board, a national organization 
responsible for setting accounting 
standards, has issued over 40 new 
directives since the first edition of 
the textbook was published. "We've 
added new chapters and revised 
some chapters to accommodate these 
changes, some of which are 
drastic," Sanders said. "Changes in 
the law, economic conditions and 
research are all factors in the 
rewriting process." 

The 1056-page textbook 
emphasizes readability and 
consistent use of real-world 
businesses such as Sears Roebuck 
and Company. R.J. Reynolds and 
Roche Biomedical Laboratories. 
Keeping in step with the high-tech 
age, a Computer Assisted 
Instruction package is also available 
to adopters of the text. Class-tested 
and developed over two years, this 
tutorial aid is ideal for a laboratory 

Principles of Accounting, Third 
Edition introduces the complete 
accounting model while 
incorporating ail the fundamental 
accounting concepts with a clear and 

cohesive approach. "In writing a 
textbook, you accept the 
responsibility for putting out 
information that thousands of 
people will read and accept as the 
gospel," Sanders said. "It's a 
tremendous responsibility." 

Sanders, a professor of business 
administration and accounting at 
Elon since 1965, has accepted that 
responsibility numerous times. He 
was consulting editor of "Basic 
Accounting," a textbook published 
in the U.S. and Canada in 1975, and 
the author of "A Student's Self 
Study Guide" to accompany that 
textbook. He also co-authored 
"Financial Accounting: A Basic 
Approach" in 1980 with Isaac N. 
Reynolds and Albert Slavin, 
Northeastern University, in addition 
to the two previous editions of this 
new book. Dr. Sanders is a member

Association, the National 
Association of Accountants and the

Henricks' work selected for 'Art on Paper' 



When readers of the 
Greensboro Daily News 
opened their morning papers 
on November 11, 1983, they saw on 
the inside front page, not a 
photograph of a tragedy or an 
accident, but a photograph of fine 
art — a painting by Judy Smith 
Henricks, part-time instructor in art 
at Elon College, entitled "Pitcher 
with Flowered Cloth," The painting 
was one of those exhibited in the 
acclaimed Art on Paper 1983 show 
held from November 13 to 
December 11 in the Weatherspoon 
Art Gallery in Greensboro. 

Having a painting selected for the 
show was a considerable honor for 
Henricks. Hers was one of only 14 
works by local artists to be chosen. 

Art on Paper, sponsored annually 
at the Weatherspoon by the Dillard 
Paper Company, is a highly 
respiected show featuring works by 
noted contemporary artists, all done 
on paper. This year's version — the 
19th annual — included 156 works, 
chiefly by American artists, most of 
whom are from the New York City 
area. Nine works came from 
throughout the country and 13 were 
from members of the UNC-G 
faculty in art. The Weatherspoon 
Gallei7 is located on the campus of 

"Pitcher with Flowered Cloth" is 
a typical Henricks painting. It is a 
still life in oil on paper, measuring 
16 X \5y* inches. Henricks is neither 
an abstract artist nor a 
hyper-realistic one. Her paintings, 
exhibit a strong relationship with the 
natural world but not an exact one. 

"Painting for me is a formal 
exercise," she says. "What interests 
me in a painting is placement, shape 
and color, and playing with those 
elements to achieve different effects. 
'Pitcher with Flowered Cloth' for 
example, was primarily an exercise 
in color, in red/green opposition. 
The table is teaJ-colored. The 
flowered cloth is behind a white 
pitcher and three small pears on a 
table. A peach-colored cloth or 
napkin lies nearby. In the painting I 
was interested in how the colors can 
make each other vibrate and also in 
the feeling the fall of the light 
creates in the painting." 

All of Henricks' paintings are 
still-life. Bottles, fruits and 
plants are favorite objects 
and patterned cloth is also 
frequently included. She often paints 
the same objects over and over, but 
abandons them once her reaction is 
conditioned — once they no longer 
"ignite a spark." Consequently, she 
is always searching for interesting 
objects in grocery stores, antique 
shops and fabric outlets. 

'Pitcher with Flowered Cloth." still 
life in oil by Judy Henricks was one 
of only 14 local works selected for 
Art on Paper 1983. The painting 
was featured in newspaper and 
television stories about the show. 
Pictured below Is "Hydrangea and 
Checked Qoth," IS'/i x 18'/* 

This selection process forms an 
important part of the gestation 
period for new works. "I see 
something like a piece of fabric or 
some fruit in a market and get 
excited about that thing. Sometimes 
the color or shape leads me to other 
items I already have. I see 
associations. I think about them and 
how I would combine colors and 
shapes in the painting." 

All of the groundwork is done 
before picking up a brush. Since she 
must hire a babysitter in order to 
paint in her garage studio, she can't 
waste studio time not painting. 

Henricks finds it difficult to talk 
about any strong statement her 
paintings make. "In my paintings 
the statement is the combination of 
color, form and shape," she says, 
"as opposed to the very strong 
emotional or even political 
statements that some artists make in 
their paintings." 

She also does not consider herself 
part of any current trend in 
painting. She shuns such modern 
innovations as the air brush, and 
even acrylic paints, preferring 
instead to paint at an easel with oils. 
"I guess much of the revolution of 
art has passed me by," she states. 
"I seem to be more in line with a 
turn-of-the-century artist." 

Whatever her methods, they 
seem to be working nicely for 
Henricks. The Art on Paper 
show was the capstone of a series 
of exhibitions. In 1980 she had 
one-arlist shows in the Firehouse 
Gallery, Graham, N.C. and in the 
Durham Art Guild Gallery. 

Since 1981 she has exhibited at the 
Green Hill Gallery in Greensboro, 
and she had works included in their 
winter shows in 1982 and 1983. 
From Green Hill, word spread to 
the Somerhill Gallery, Durham, 
whose director chose some of 
Henricks' oil paintings for a bank in 
Alamance County, 

Awards first began for Judy 
Smith back at North Central

Maedell Lambeth Rice '40 

Elon alumna writes 
prize-winning poetry 

By Ronote Roy 
RepriDted from Columbia 

Maedell Rice (Linda Maedell 
Lambeth '40) was 11 years old when 
she won her first poetry prize. 
"I won a bottle of perfume for a 
jingle," she says. "1 was just a kid. 
My father and mother thought it 
was pretty nice. Back in the '30s 
you didn't win much money." 

Fifty years later Rice, of 
Columbia, Mo., is still writing 
prize-winning poetry. She recently 
won nine awards, including five for 
first place, in poetry competitions of 
the Fleetwood Society of^oets in 
South Shore, Ky., and the Carter 
County Poetry Society, Carter 
Caves, Ky. 

Ms. Rice was invited to read her 
poetry and be honored at a banquet 
in Kentucky. She did not go. "It 
would have been fun, but I've got 
too many strings to my bow," she 

It's hard for Rice to sii still and 
talk about her poetry. She finds it 
hard, in fact, to sit still at all. "I'm 
afflicted with hyperactivity," she 
says. "1 have to be doing things." 
In her window hang stained glass 
objects she has made. On the shelves 
sit ceramic pots made by her and 
her daughter. By the kitchen table 
sits a guitar. She is a serious 
classical guitarist. 

"I recently had an attack of 
tulip-o-mania," she says. "I planted 
over $90 worth of tulips this fall," 
Her backyard is a playground for 
the area children, and she has made 
her front yard into a rock garden. 
"It's fun in the spring," Rice says. 
"I like stumps and rocks. I collect 
rocks when I can." 

"1 have to be doing things," she 
says. "Writing is sort of inactive but 
it's satisfactory, too, in its way." 

Although she started with jingles, 
her poetry has changed over the 
years. "1 write strictly serious stuff 
because I'm from a strict academic, 
ministerial background," she says. 
"Time seems very precious to me, 
and what I am is more important 
than who or what I do." 

She says her poetry is just now 
beginning to be appreciated. She 
thinks the reason is that people 
didn't like philosophical or religious 
slants on life. "All my poetry is 
geared toward thoughtful 
appreciation for beauty, courage, 
life and conviction. I would think 
I was wasting my time if I were 
writing about what to me is 
triviality," she says. 

Rice, a North Carolina native, 

graduated from Elon College in 
1940 and studied at Columbia 
College in New York City. While 
there, she began teaching and 
writing for children. "It was a 
fascinating time of my life," she 
says. "People would dance in the 
streets — people from other 
countries. Everybody was so nice in 
those days. And there was never any

She was surprised when she found 
out she had won awards in the

Janie Council is retiring. The 
woman who seems lo be 
everybody's favorite 
professor at Elon College is leaving 
in May. after 24 years of teaching in 
the Department of Business 
Administration and Accounting. 

The walls of Janie Council's 
office in Alamance Building are 
dotted with plaques and awards — 
evidence of her immense popularity 
with students. 

has been nominated for the award 
many times since, but it has not 
been the policy of the committee to 
allow multiple winners. 

The Society for the Advancement 
of Management honored Mrs. 
Council by naming their outstanding 
member award for her. The 
cheerleaders have given her an 
award, as have the Business Student 
Communicators. Once an informal 
group of students presented her with 

philosophy is to treat students as 
whole persons. 

"I let my students know I'm 
interested in them and their 
problems, and I really am. My 
office is always open. They know 
they will have someone who will 
listen, and I think they need it." 

Indeed they must, for Janie 
Council's office always has someone 
in it. One of the things her students 
praise most about her is her 

"The first day I was in her class, 
I knew she was a special person," 
says Bobby Sandell, who graduated 
from Elon in 1976 and is now in 
real estate in Hilton Head, S.C. 
"There was something in her voice. 
It just rang with enthusiasm, and 
she so sincerely wanted to help 

"There aren't enough words to 
say what she's meant to me 
personally," says Libby Crosby '79. 
"She encouraged me to do the best I 
could." The best for Libby was very 
good indeed. She went on to 
graduate school at Virginia Tech 
and is now a senior tax specialist for 
Peat, Marwick and Mitchell, one of 
the nation's "Big Eight" accounting 

Seven times since 1970 she has 
been voted Outstanding Professor of 
the Year by the Student Government 

She was the first recipient of the 
Daniels-Danieley Award for 
Excellence in Teaching at Elon. She

Indeed, Janie Council has a thing 
about students — she loves them. 
And you don't need to see the 
plaques on her wall to tell how 
much they love her in return. 

All you have to do is ask one of 

Who is this woman that people 
can't say enough good about? 
A petite dynamo; -S'S" of 
energy and enthusiasm and a heart 
as warm as fresh-baked bread. 

"What is so special about Janie is 
that she is really interested in her 
students; she really and truly cares," 
says her colleague. Dr. Allen 
Sanders, professor of business 
administration and accounting. 
"She's interested in them as persons 
and is concerned about all their 
problems. They sense that and 
respond. She has incredible rapport 
with her students." 
Mrs. Council affirms that her

"One of the amazing things about 
Mrs. Council is that she was — and 
is, I'm sure — always there," says 
Sandell. "She always has time for 

Having time for people has led 
Mrs. Council into an active role 
with several student organizations. 

As adviser to the Civinetles for 10 
years, she has been constantly 
involved with that organization. 
She's visibly proud of that club 
and the fact that it is a true service 
organization, the only one on Elon's 

She is also an instrumental faculty 
figure in the Society of the 
Advancement for Management 
(SAM), which she advised for many 
years. "Mrs. Council encouraged me 
to join SAM," says Tom Berry, '78, 
who went on to become president of 
the organization. "She wants 
everyone to get everything possible 
while they're at Elon, and she is 
willing to work to make that 

The Magazine of Elon 



In addition, the indefatigable Mrs. 
Council served for years as adviser 
to a sorority and to the cheerleaders. 
A sports enthusiast, she still goes to 
cheerleader camp every year. 

But the list of her activities 
doesn't stop there. She also takes on 
an incredible advising load each 
semester — up to 80 students. And 
she is known for the personal touch 
— caids, cookies, inviting people to 
her home. 

"I have never seen anybody give 
so selflessly as Janie Council," says 
Dr. Linda Weavil, assistant 
professor of business education and 
business administration and director 
of cooperative education. "She's 
always baking for someone; she goes 
to every student's wedding, gives a 
gift to every new baby. She often 
has students and former students at 
her home and travels all over the 
place to visit them." 

How does one person do so 
much and teach too? For 
Mrs. Council, there's only 
one explanation: she loves Elon and 
she loves the students. She can give 
so much of herself because she 
genuinely cares for them and is 
genuinely concerned about their 

There's more to Janie Council 
than friend and confidani, however. 
She is also recognized as an excellent 
teacher and an asset to the business 

"Her incredible rapport with her 
students is a strong motivating 
factor," says Dr. Sanders. 

Libby Crosby agrees. "She has a 
way of making people hungry for 
more knowledge. In the classroom 
she is so full of what she's doing, 
you simply cannot get bored. Also, 
she has amazing patience. She will 
go over something as many times as 
it takes to make sure everyone 

Mrs. Council says of her 
teaching philosophy. "I 
want to teach well what 1 
teach and test on what I 
teach. I still prepare for 
every class. I also try to 
encourage students 
individually. It bothers me 
when students do not work 
up to the level of their 

Is there anything bad 
about Janie Council? 
Apparently not. "In the 10 
years I've been here, I've 
never even seen her be 
unpleasant," says Linda 
Weavil. "The only time she 
gets upset is when she 
thinks a student is being 
treated unfairly." 

A native of 
Greenville, North 
Carolina, Mrs. 
Council is a graduate of 
East Carolina University 
with a BA in English and 
business education. After 
receiving that degree she 

went on to graduate school at ECU 
and earned her master's in business 
with a concentration in accounting, 
while also working as secretary to 
the university's business manager. 

She and her husband, William, 
then came to the Burlington area 
and Mrs. Council, who always knew 
she wanted to teach, taught for ten 
years in the evening school at 
Burlington Business College while 
her two sons were small. 

In 1960 she accepted a job at 
Elon College to teach shorthand and 
office machines. After three years, 
she went into teaching accounting 
where she has since remained. 

Things were quite different at 
Elon in 1960. She was assigned no 
office, but used a classroom in 
Alamance instead. Classes were 
taught six days a week, she recalls. 

The business department has been 
enlarged considerably in the years 
since Mrs. Council came, and its 
offerings strengthened. In 1960 no 
accounting degree was offered; now, 

of course, accounting is one of the 
college's most respected majors. 

Elon accounting graduates in 
recent years have performed well on 
the rigorous Certified Public 
Accountant's examination. A recent 
Greensboro Dally News article 
reported that in 1983 the percentage 
of Elon graduates passing all four 
sections of the test in one sitting was 
higher than that of North Carolina 
State University, Appalachian, East 
Carolina and Guilford, among 

The total business curriculum has 
recently been strengthened to make 
available the Bachelor of Science 
degree for accounting and business 

."According to Libby Crosby and 
others, Mrs. Council's excellent 
teaching is a contributing factor to 
the department's strength. "She was 
the main reason I passed the CPA 
exam on the first try," says Crosby. 
"Although Elon had no accounting 
theory course at that time, I 
recognized as I took the test that she 
had integrated theory into the 
intermediate accounting courses." 

Mrs. Council says she has never 
been bored teaching accounting. 
"Accounting is an exciting field with 
changes every year," she maintains. 
"Textbooks are constantly being 
updated to keep up with new and 
revised standards and changing tax 
laws. It keeps you on your toes." 

Mrs. Council is also devoted to 
the teacher education program and 
teaches the methods course for 
business education majors. 

How can anyone so involved in 
her work leave? For one 
thing, Mrs. Council wants to 
retire before she loses any of her 
enthusiasm for her job. Then, too, 
other things are calling. Her 
husband retired two years ago, and 
they would like to spend some lime 

Also, she plans to do some things 
she's never had time to do before. 
She mentions cooking and 
gardening, learning to do crafts, 
travel, getting involved in 
community work — and spoiUng her 

She and her husband are planning 
to build a house on land they have 
bought near their son's home in 
Farmington, N.C., outside of 

What will Janie Council miss the 
most about Elon? You don't have to 
ask — it's the students. "For me, 
everything centered around the 
students. I love them and I'll really 
miss them." 

And they will miss her. Teacher, 
friend, adviser, confidante — she's 
meant so much to countless Elon 

Tom Crosby sums it up: 
"She was like a second mother. 
You could go to her about any 
problem and her advice was always 
helpful. She look the preSsure off of 
you. She made four years of my life 
four years I'll never forget." 

Some of Janie Council's former 
students are planniDg a scholarship 
in ber honor. They have fonned an 
endowmeDt group which will match 
up to a total of $10,000 in gifts for 
tbe Janie E. Council Scholarship 

If Janie Council touched your life 
and you would like to honor ber in 
this way, send your gift to the Janie

A major In foreign languages, 
approved by the faculty in the fall 
of 1983, has moved Elon College 
tentatively toward the 
re-establish men I of languages as an 
important part of the liberal arts 

The recently approved major, to 
become effective in the 1984-85 
academic year, requires a student to 
study at least two foreign languages, 
one primary and one secondary. In 
the main language, the student must 
successfully complete six semester 
hours at the intermediate or 200 
level and 18 hours at the 300 level. 
In the second language, he or she 
must satisfactorily meet 
requirements for six semester hours, 
211 and 212. 

Why begin with a major requiring 
two languages instead of one? 
Surely a student could easily spend 
more than three years or 30 hours 
on one foreign language. For many, 
that would not be enough for 
proficiency in speaking and 

"If we had decided to start again 
with the traditional one-language 
major, we would have used too 
many of our resources in that one," 
says Christopher White, vice 
president and dean of academic 
affairs. "We would have cut off 
German for the present, or French. 
We want to encourage all to grow, 
but we should start with the 
language having the greatest strength 
at Elon College as the reinstated 
foreign language major." 

The greatest strength now lies in 
Spanish, the language used by the 
Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, Cubans 
and emigrants and refugees 
from South America, now living in 
the United States. Spanish has long 
echoed through business offices of 
multi-nationals, in telephone calls, 
and along the streets of New York 
City and the southern coast from 
Florida to California. 

At present the foreign language 
major will have Spanish as its 
primary language and French or 
German as secondary. The new 
courses in Spanish emphasize 
advanced conversation and 
composition as well as Spanish and 
Latin American literature. 

To look back at the decade of the 
'70s is to see a distressing history of 
foreign languages at Elon College. 
One sees the college following a then 
current fad in higher education, 
thinking wistfully about student 
choices in courses, and discovering 
that it is difficult to rescue a 
program of study that is slipping 
away. The mistakes of that decade 

are on the minds of administrators 
and professors as they rebuild the 

In 1970-71 foreign languages were 
still required for graduation at Elon. 

For the language major, a minimum 
of 39 semester hours in French was 
required plus six hours of Latin if 
the student did not exhibit 
proficiency (six courses were offered 
in Latin). A Spanish major required 
36 semester hours, and the student 
had 17 courses to choose from. 
German courses numbered 11, and 
Greek 4. Eleven professors taught 
non-Enghsh languages in 1970-71. 

In 1971-72 the college changed the 
language requirements for all 
students to 12 semester hours of 
language and literature to be 
selected from English, French, 
German, Spanish or Greek. The 
reason given for the change was the 
decreasing numbers who were 
majoring in foreign languages. What 
the change did was to end the 
foreign language requirement for 
graduation and put language on a 
downhill roller-coaster as most 
students chose English. 

By 1974-75 the catalogue listed 
only five professors, and courses 
had shrunk to the 100 and 200 level 
and an independent study course. 
Greek held on to one course each 
semester over two years, and Latin 
had disappeared. 

In the remaining 1970s, 
non-Enghsh languages at Elon 
served to make up entrance 
requirements for many students and 
to whet the amibiton of a few for 
further language study. The 
communications explosion in the 
early 1980s renewed interest in 
strengthening weakened language 
programs at colleges and universities 
across the country. Increased calls 
for knowledge of a second language 
in business and government also led 
to revived courses and hiring of 

After nurturing upper level 
courses during the last two years, 
Elon College has increased its 
foreign language faculty with highly 
qualified professors, 

"We now have a mixture of youth 
and experience with impeccable '* 
credentials," Vice President Chris 
While says. "These professors 
understand the need to attract and 
retain students. They encourage the 
student to major in a foreign 
language or to take language in a 
double major." 

White says he does not expect 
"hordes of students" to major in 
foreign language, but "we do see 
more choosing language and 
business or political science. We 
think we can re-establish the French 

major in another year or two." 

What about the "fail-safe" net — 
if in three years the enrollment does 
not reach a certain level, does the 
program go on the scrap heap? Does 
its destiny depend on a dollars and 
cents balance sheet? 

"We think we are scheduling 
courses for financial feasibility — 
that is, six upper-level Spanish 
classes, one a semester over a 
three-year cycle," White says. "The 
six are not prerequisites for each 
other. In addition, we have 
independent study. We think we 
have modest expectations, those that 
are reasonable and realistic." 

"We expect the program to moN 
but we want it to be successful 
as part of the liberal arts traditit 
are and what we ospire to be." 

vice president 

"We expect the program to move 
ahead for its own value, but we 
want it to be successful because 
Elon needs languages as part of the 
liberal arts tradition. They are part 
of who we are and what we aspire 
to be." 

The new foreign 
language faculty: 
excellence across 
the board 

Ernest Jackson Lunsford, 38 the 

first of the new group of foreign 
language professors to join the Elon 
College faculty, brings both wide 
and in-depth training and experience 
in the Spanish language and 
literature as well as Spanish and 
Latin- American culture. 

Bom in Durham, North Carolina, 
Lunsford received his B.A. in 
Spanish from Duke University, his 
M.A. from Middlebury College in 
Vermont and his Ph.D. in Spanish 
language and literature with 
certificate in Latin American Studies 
from the University of Florida. His 
dissertation examined the th^ry of 
the novel as revealed in 
contemporary Spanish American ■: 
novels. Lunsford has also studied in 
Lima, Peru and Madrid and has 
traveled extensively in Mexico, 
South America, Spain and other 
European countries. 

The Magazine of Elon 




Before coming to Elon, Dr. 
Lunsford taught at Episcopal High 
in Alexandria, Virginia, at Salem 
College and at Virginia 
Commonwealth University. At VCU 
he directed the study-abroad 
programs in Mexico City and 
Malaga and Barcelona, Spain. 

Lunsford sees the need for Elon 
students to have the experience of 
language study abroad. "As a 
beginning, I am planning a three or 
four-week classroom and travel 
seminar in Mexico City in the 
summer of 1985," he says. Courses 
in the Spanish language, Mexican 
history, and pre-Columbian art at

More information will be 
available in the fall of 1984 from 
Dr. Lunsford. Interested friends of 
the college and alumni will be 
invited to make inquiries about the 
study abroad program. 

In the meantime, Dr. Lunsford 
enjoys his garden and home in 
Burlington where he raises very 
special irises and daylilies hybridized 
by his late mother. He plays the 
piano, skis, and likes to visit art 

Also teaching Spanish is 
Gerardo Rodriguez, 47, a native of 
Madrid who came to Elon College 
from Saint Mary's College, Notre 
Dame, where he had served as 
chairman of modern languages, 

Having lived in Spain, Mexico 
and the United States, he brings 
much teaching experience and 
participation in workshops on 
literature and methodology in 
teaching foreign languages to 
speakers of English. 

Rodriguez prepared for a teaching 
career by college and special work in 
education at the Normal Inferior 
Cristobal Colon in Mexico City and 

February 1984 

the M.A. in education. Normal 
Superior Benevente, Puebla, Pue., 
Mexico. He went back to Spain 
where he earned the Ph.D. in 
education at the University of 
Madrid in 1964. The summers of 
1971 and 1972 were spent at 
Middlebury College, Vermont, 
known around the world for its 
language curriculum. 

His teaching experience ranges 
over several colleges in Mexico and 
the United States — Colegio 
Benavente and Normal Inferior 
Benavenle in Puebla, Pue., Mexico; 
Douglass College, Rutgers 
University; Beaver College, 
Glenside, Pa.; and Saint Mary's. 

Rodriguez is a prize-winning poet 
who also has a lively interest in 
drama and the visual arts. He has 
directed many Spanish plays, and 
his research has centered on drama 
and the Spanish theater. His 
workshops have focused on such 
topics as "Twentieth Century 
Spanish and Spanish -American 
Theater," "Humor in Thirty 
Paintings by Picasso," and 
"Obstacles in Language to 

This professor also enjoys some 
after-class "socializing." He

MarJoD OrnsteiD, bom in 

Amsterdam, came to New York 
state as a child. After receiving a 
B.A. in psychology from Guilford 
College, she went to France where 
she studied with the Middlebury 
College Graduate School of French 
at the Sorbonne, University of 
Paris, and was awarded the M.A. in 
1953. She received her Ph.D. in 
French from the University of 
Wisconsin, Madison. 

Although her specialty is French, 
Omstein is at home in Dutch, 
German and English. Her education 
and experience have earned for her 
such comments from her students 
and colleagues as "an extremely fine 
teacher," "enthusiastic," "lively," 
and "exacting." 

She has taught at Ashley Hall in 
Charleston, S.C.; Abbot Academy, 
now part of Phillips Academy, 
Andover, Mass.; the University of 
Texas, where she was named best 
new French instructor; Lawrence 
University, Appleton, Wise; and the 
University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh. 

One of Marjon Omstein's most 
interesting assignments was teaching 
French at the Iranzamin Tehran 
International School in Tehran, 

"I taught all levels from seventh 
through eleventh grades in this 
outstanding high school," she 
recalls. "The school is very 
academic, h prepares its graduates, 
Persijm and foreign students, to 
enter leading universities all over the 

"One term 1 taught in the 
elementary school where pupils start 
French in the third grade. 1 had 
learned ihe direct French method of 
teaching and helped in its adoption

teaching was consecutive right 
through all the grades," she said. 
"Some students were good in three 
to five languages." 

Dr. Omstein lived in Tehran four 
and one-half years and became 

acquainted with much of Iranian life 
and language. 

Now at Elon she is enthusiastic 
about the foreign languages major. 
"It makes sense to take a double 
major with a foreign language as 
one," she says. "Young students do 
not realize how important it is to be 
able to communicate in a second 
language today. But it takes at least

Katherine Wallace-Casey, 27, 

arrived at Elon College in September 
1983 from Harvard University where 
she had studied comparative 
literature on a teaching fellowship 
since 1978. She received the M.A. in 
1981 and the Ph.D. in June 1983. 

She went to Harvard from 
Stanford University where she had 
earned both the B.A. in French and 
German Literatures as well as the 
M.A. in German Studies in 1978. 
Between 1974 and 1978 
Wallace-Casey spent considerable 
time in Vienna, Austria, Paris, and 
Germany imder the Stanford Studies 
programs. Living and working with 
native speakers, she perfected her 
own fluency. 

Her meteoric university career 
took its beginnings from fine 
scholastic work in high school which 
merited a four-year California State 
Scholarship at Stanford, a Bank of 
America Award for Foreign 
Languages, a Zeta Phi Beta Sorority 
Scholarship, and membership in the 
National Honor Society, all in 1973. 

Young Dr. Wallace-Casey teaches 
German at Elon although she had 
first inquired about an opening in 
Spanish here. When she discovered 
that the college needed a German 
professor, she accepted that 
position, and everyone was pleased. 
Though German literature was her 
major concentration at Harvard, she 
had studied Spanish language and 
literature at Stanford and again in 

Although she had considerable 
teaching experience at Harvard and 
Stanford, her job as assistant 
professor of foreign languages at 
Elon College is her first full-time 
leaching role. She is here to teach 
German, to help increase enrollment 
in German classes, and to develop 
upper-level courses. 

Dr. Wallace-Casey lives in 
Greensboro where her husband is a 
student at North Carolina A & T 
State University. He had taken a 
year of university studies off to 
work in Boston while she completed 
her dissertation at Harvard. 

These four new professors have 
much of the future of foreign 
languages in their hands. But not 
all. They look to the administration, 
other professors in other disciplines, 
10 outreach programs in high 
schools and communities, and, 
probably most of all, to students 
who are coming to realize the value 
of languages in careers and in 
self-development and enrichment.

Anderson as 
head coach 

Lonnie Mack "Macky" Garden, Jr., 
an assistant football coach ai Elon 
College for the past seven years has 
been named head coach of the 
Fighiin' Christians. 

He succeeds Wright Anderson 
who resigned January 13 to accept 
an assistant's position with the 
Oklahoma Outlaws of the United 
States Football League. 

"I'm happy to be Elon's head 
coach," said Garden, 39, who is a 
1967 graduate of the college. "I 
think I've prepared myself for the 
head job by coaching on the high 
school level and as an assistant to 
coaches Jerry Tolley and Anderson. 

"WeTe extremely proud to elevate 
Macky Garden to the position of 
head coach," said Dr. Alan White, 
director of athletics. "Macky is a 
quiet coach but an excellent one. He 
has all the qualities necessary to 
continue the stability in the fine 
football program at Elon." 

While also pointed out thai 
Garden had been Elon's chief 
recruiter and that he knows most of 
the high school and junior college 
coaches in the state. 

Garden indicated he would retain 
all coaches currently on the Elon 
staff. They include Don Kelly, 
linebackers and defensive ends 
coach; Gary Van Dam, defensive 
backs; Charlie Griffin, defensive 
front; Mike Howell, light ends and 
receivers. He also said he would like 
to retain the services of part-time 
staffers Steve Johnson, Dwight 
Dutton and Henry Trevathan. 

An offensive coach will be hired 
to replace Anderson, Garden said. 

A native of Durham, Garden 
graduated from Norih Durham High 
where he played football and 
basketball and ran track. He 
attended Wake Forest for one year 
before transferring to Elon, where 
he majored in physical education. 
He received his master's degree in 
physical education at Appalachian 

Prior to coaching at Elon, Garden 
held high school coaching jobs at 
Graham High, High Point Andrews, 
Hillsborough Orange, High Point 
Central and Kannapolis. 

In 1977 he became Elon's 
offensive line coach under Coach 
Jerry Tolley, a position he has held 
since. He has converted the line, 
once a major weakness, into one of 
the strongest annually in the SAG-8 

In an interview with the 
Burlington Times-News, Garden said 
he has no precise coaching

philosophy. "1 guess you can say 
I'm a personal coach as opposed to 
an x's and o's coach, although I 
have a good background in x's and 
o's. I plan no major changes in the 
footbaJl program. Perhaps we'll 
refine a few things." 

Garden does not think the 
coaching change will hurt recruiting. 

We're in good shape personnel - 
wise," he added. "We lose most of 
our offense, three linemen, a

Soccer team 
has best 
season yet 

Elon's soccer leam completed its 
best year ever with a 12-5-2 
campaign in 1983. The Fightin' 
Christians hooters advanced to the 
District 26 finals before losing to 
Atlantic Christian 2-0 in a game 
played at Elon's home field. 

A number of players also 
captured post-season honors for the 
Fightin' Christians. Being named to 
the All-Carolinas Conference team 
were striker Paul Lawson, goalie Joe 
Barilinski, sweeper back Israel 
Hernandez, stopper back Andy 
Schaefer and striker Scott Spada. 
Lawson, Spada, Hernandez and 
Barilinski also captured All-District 
26 honors. Elon's first Ail-American

numerous injuries, were ranked No. 
18 in the final NAIA national poll. 
For the third time in the past four

school, Carson -Newman, captured 
the NAIA national title. With Elon's 
national championships in 1980 and 
1981, it is apparent the South 
Atlantic Conference is the premier 
conference in the NAIA. 

Several Fightin' Christians 
garnered post-season honors. Named 
to the All-District First Team were 
offensive guard Clay Hassard, 
offensive tackle Eddie Hernandez, 
defensive end Jeff Cooper, 
linebacker Royce Fentress, and 
strong safety Kenny Angel. Second 
Team honorees were tight end Kelly 
Stanley, runningback Jimmy Smith, 
and noseguard Grady Williams. 
Garnering All-South Atlantic 
Conference honors from Elon were 
defensive end Jeff Cooper, 
linebacker Royce Fentress, and 
offensive tight end Kelly Stanley 
along with center Thomas Kilcrease. 
Being named to the second team 
from Elon were noseguard Grady

F.A. Rawles celebrated his 80th 
birthday recently by working as a 
substitute teacher at Williamston 
Junior High School in Williamston, 

N. C. 

Mr. Rawles was born in Suffolk. 
Va,. October 7, 1903 and attended 
the public schools there. After 
graduating from Elon College in 
1928, following several 
years of work and a return to 
school, he began a leaching career at 
Jamesville High School. He taught 
science and coached girls basketball 
at the school. Mr. Rawles' college 
degree certified him to teach all 
subjects and all grades 1-12. 

He later taught at Chowan High 
School and Roper High School 
before going to work in the 
insurance, slocks and bonds 
business. The depression took care 
of his business and he took a job 
with the Virginia Department of 
Highways. After working with the 
U.S. Navy during World War II, he 
went back to the Virginia 
Department of Highways until he 
retired with 25 years of service. He 
and his wife Camille then moved to 

Mr. Rawles has worked for nearly 
1 1 years as a substitute teacher in 
the Martin County Schools. During 
that tenure, he has worked in 13 of 
the 14 county schools in all grades 
and subjects. He is an active 

member of the Williamston Lions 
Club, serving as the White Cane 
Director last year, a member of the

Methodist Church, and a Sunday 
School teacher. He also finds time 
to sing in the choir at the church. 

When asked about his longevity. 
Mr. Rawles' comment was, 'I'm 
thankful.' He also stated that he 
tries to impress on his temporary 
students that association and 
perseverance are all important and 
that he is appreciative to be allowed 
the opportunity to work with them. 
They keep him looking forward to 
seeing and working with them next 

Students in the Martin County 
Schools look forward tD seeing Mr. 
Rawls and hearing him give 
time-honored principles and 
quotations to illustrate points, 
school officials stated. It was noted 
that he takes a genuine interest in 
each student he sees and often asks 
later how students did in a certain 
class or course. 

Mr. Rawles lives with his wife, 
Camille. who also continues to work

Still life painter Henricks continued from page 4 

College, Naperville, Illinois, in the 
late 1960s when she won the 
Outstanding Freshman Award. 
When she went on for her B.A. 
degree at the University of Illinois, 
Chicago Circle, her major was 
English literature. She graduated 
cum laude with departmental 
dislinction in 1977. For her, work in 
art began with weaving which she 
taught later at the Technical College 
of Alamance. 

In the fall of 1979 Henricks 
received a graduate assistantship at 
UNC-G in art. and she continued 
her interest in weaving. But a course 
in painting soon overtook her love 
of work in fibers. Since 1980, 
Henricks has taught drawing, design 
and painting at Elon College on a 

part-time basis. Her husband, Tom, 
is assistant professor of sociology at 
the college. They have one child, 
Elizabeth, born in 1982. Judy 
Henricks likes teaching and finds 
contact with students both enjoyable 
and helpful. "It forces you to 
rethink certain issues," she says. She 
also likes to watch them learn to 
paint — "they often amaze 

Henricks sees herself continuing 
to paint in the future. Recognition 
and commercial success, while they 
are gratifying, does not strongly 
motivate her. "You can't eat on 
what you make selling paintings," she" 
says. "The act of painting must be a 
self-sustaining thing in itself. For 
me it is." 

"Pears, BotUe and Patterned Cloth," 15 1/4 x 14 1/8 is a Henricks' still life

As of March 31, 1984, the Elon 
College PRIDE II campaign had 
garnered $4,512,000 toward its goal 
of $5.7 million. Announced in 
October, 1983, the PRIDE 11 
campaign is the most ambitious 
fund-raising effort in Elon College 
history. It seeks to raise $2 million 
for endowment, $2 million for a 
new Fine Arts Center, $1.2 million 
for Annual Giving and $500,000 for 
physical plant enhancements. 
College officials were gratified by 

the success of the campaign thus 

"Once again alumni, parents, 
friends and members of the college 
family have demonstrated their 
commitment to Elon College," said 
Dr. Jo Watts Williams, vice 
president for development. "The 
success of this campaign is a direct 
reflection of their generosity and 
dedication to high ideals, and it 
renews our commitment to ensure 
that their money is well invested." 

According to Dr. Jerry Tolley, 
campaign coordinator, twenty-eight 
new scholarship funds have been 
established as a result of the 
campaign, generating over $500,000 
for the Elon scholarship 
endowment. Two of these 
scholarships honor members of Ihe 
Elon College family — former coach

The 1984 Elon College Phonathon 
has ended with a total of 
$112,343 pledged to the college, 
the largest amount ever raised in 
the five-year history of the 

"We surpassed our goal of 
$100,000 by 12 percent," said an 
ecstatic Dr. Jerry Tolley, Elon's 
Director of Annual Giving and 
organizer of the Phonathon. "It 
gets better every year. The 
enthusiastic response of the 
alumni, parents and friends who 
were called is truly gratifying." 

An interesting sideline in this 
year's Phonathon was the Great 
Alumni Challenge. The alumni 
who graduated after 1968, the 
" still- wet-behind-the-ears" crowd, 
challenged the "old-timers," 

those who graduated before that 
year, to see who could get the 
highest number of donors. 
According to Tolley, however, it 
is still too early to predict the 
winner in that hotly contested 
race. The "old timers" are now 
ahead by approximately 100 
donors, but the final figures will 
not be known until after May 31, 
1984, the date all pledges are due. 

The Phonathon, an annual 
spring event at Elon, raises money 
for the Annual Fund, which helps 
to pay for general operating 
expenses. Donations to the 
Annual Fund help to offset the 
rising costs of day-to-day 
operations and therefore help to 
keep tuition costs down. 

Phonathon calls are made by 
students at Elon over a 
three-week period. "We try to 
contact every alimmus, parent 
and friend of Elon College," said 
Tolley. The callers are 
representatives of various student 
service groups and Greek 
organizations at the college, as 
well as the ROTC, the Black 

Cultural Society and the new 
dormitory complex. 

The callers this year were 
divided into two teams, composed 
of five groups each. The top 
group in each team won a trip to 
Myrtle Beach during Spring 
Break. Mr. and Mrs. Ernest C. 
Watkins '48 again donated the 
use of their condominium for the 
week to the winning teams. 

"We are extremely grateful to 
Mr. and Mrs. Watkins for their 
generosity in letting us use their 
home again," said Dr. Jo Watts 
Williams, vice president for 
development. "This trip provides 
motivation for our volunteer 
callers and rewards them for the 
hard work they put into the 

Tolley praised this year's 
student callers as dedicated and 
highly effective. The winners of 
the trip were Tau Kappa Epsilon 
and Tri-Sigma representatives. 
The top caller of the Phonathon 
was Tri-Sig Karen Welzant who 
obtained 143 pledges amounting 
to a total of $3,755. 

Kappa Sigma Cbris Board '85 was 
one of many students making calls 
during the 1984 Phonalbon.

A leachei who retired after 37 years 
in the classroom in Alamance 
County has left a bequest of over 
$22,000 to Elon CoUege for 
scholarship aid to students who are 
preparing to teach. 

Mrs. Lecy Martin Kemodle, who 
died in 1982 at age 81, had taken 
some teacher education courses at 
Elon and, as a result, decided to 
establish an endowed scholarship 
fund for Alamance County students 
majoring in education. She was the 
auint of Emery K. Gilliam, a 1948 
graduate of Elon College, who 
encouraged her to include the liberal 
arts institution in her will. Gilliam is 
a senior group industrial engineer 
for Burlington Industries, and his 
wife, Doris, also an Elon alumna, 
works in the athletic office at Elon. 

Mrs. Kemodle was bom in the 
Bethany community of Alamance 
County in 1901. She attended 
Bethany Grade School and 
graduated from Graham High 
School. Dedicated to the profession 
of teaching, she was educated at 
Appalachian State University and 
Lenoir College. She retired in 1963 
from her long-time position as a 
certified elementary teacher in the 
Alamance County school system. 

She began her teaching career at 
the Bethany School in the Southern 
part of the county, then moved to 
Oakwood School near Gilliam's 
Church in the northern part of 
Alamance. When Oakwood 
closed, she transferred to 
Altamahaw-Ossipee School, where 
she taught the first grade until her 

While teaching at Oakwood 
School, she boarded at the home of 
Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Kemodle, 
within walking distance of the 
one-room schoolhouse. She later 
married their son, Claude, and they 
had one son. Both her husband and 
son are deceased.

Mrs. Lecy Martin Kernodle 

A dedicated church worker, Mrs. 
Kemodle was a member of Shiloh 
United Methodist Church at Route 
1, Gibsonville. Her leisure time was 
spent in studying the Bible, visiting 
shut-ins, oil painting, and playing 
the violin. 

Dr. Jo Watts Williams, vice 
president for development at Elon, 
said the college will use the bequest 
to estabhsh The Lecy Martin 
Kemodle Scholarship Fund and will 
award the eammgs from the 
endowment to aid students in the 
department of education. 

"This is a wonderful memorial to 
a lady who touched so many lives 
and was highly respected, not only 
as a teacher, but also as a mother 
and friend," Dr. Williams said. 
"Her memory will live on in the 
lives of students who receive this 
scholarship, thanks to her

long illness 

Mrs. Iris Holt McEwcn, trustee 
emeritus of Elon College, died 
Sunday, April 15, 1984 after several 
years of failing health. 

Mrs. McEwen had been a member 
of the Board of Trustees since 1948. 
The Iris Holt McEwen Library on 
the campus is named in her honor, 
and the McEwen Dining Hall was 
made possible by a gift from her in 
memory of her husband, James H. 
McEwen, Sr. In 1970 she was 
awarded the honorary Doctor of 
Humane Letters degree from Elon 

"Iris McEwen was a respected 
and valued member of the Elon 
CoUege Board of Trustees for many 
years," said President Fred Young. 
"Her influence will extend for 

Mrs. McEwen had a long career 
of community service. She was a 
trustee emeritus and former 
president of the Elon Home for 
Children. The Holt Chapel on the 
campus at the home was given by 
her and her family in memory of her 
parents. She was the Alamance 

County Woman of the Year in 1962, 
a member of the Burlington Garden 
Qub, a charter member of the 
Burlington Service League, and 
organized the first Girl Scout 
Council of Burlington. She was a 
charter member of the Mentor Book 
Qub, past chairman and member of 
the Board of Public Welfare of 
Alamance County, and was vice 
president of the local Council of 
Social Agencies. 

She was a member of the First 
Christian United Church ofChrist, 
founder of the Iris McEwen Sunday 
School Class, past president of the 
Women of the Church and was 
active on boards and committees at 
the conference and convention level. 

Mrs. McEwen is survived by a 
daughter, Mrs. John A. McCrary of 
Burlington, and a son, James H. 
McEwen, Jr. of New York, who is 
also a member of the Elon College 
Board of Trustees. 

Movie Director Martin Ritt '36

Several of Ritt's best-known 
films were shown prior to and 
during the event, including 
Sounder with Paul Winfield and 
Cicely Tyson; Norma Rae with 
Sally Field ; Hud starring Paul 
Newman, Melvyn Douglas and 
Patricia Neal; and Conrack,

the setting for eight of his fihns. 

After leaving Elon in 1934, Ritt 
studied law at St. John's University 
in New York. He soon became 
involved in the theater, studied 
under Elia Kazan and joined the 
historic Group Theater. During 
World War II he served in the Air

"Superb!" "Fantastic!" 
"MarvelousI" "Extraordinary!" 
These are just some of the 
exclamations that were used by 
alumni and friends of the college to 
describe The Emanons of Elon 
College during their appearances at 
six alumni chapters in January and 

The Emanons represent the jazz 
program of the fine arts department 
at Elon. The repertoire of the group 
is a variety of music from the "Big 
Band" sounds to the vast array of 
jazz and jazz rock styles of the 80's. 
The ensemble was organized in 1962 
and has appeared in Puerto Rico, 
Switzerland, Germany and 
Luxemburg, as well as at locations 
along the eastern seaboard of the 
United States. During the 1984 
Winter Tour The Emanons appeared 
at EKsney World in Orlando, Florida 
for the tenth year. 

Under the capable direction of 
Drs. Jack White and David Bragg, 
the band entertained approximately 
1,000 Elon supporters at six social 
events sponsored by Elon College 
Altmmi Association. 


On Saturday, January 14, the 
Greater Richmond Alumni Chapter, 
headed by Linda May Shields '67 
and her husband. Bill, sponsored a 
dinner/dance at the Richmond 
Country Club. This gathering, which 
has become an annual tradition in 
Richmond, attracted over 125 
friends of the college who danced 
until midnight to the sounds of 
Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller. 
Wallace '49 and Nita Chandler 
assisted at this highly successful 


On the following evening, about 45 
Elon supporters who live near the 
nation's capital met at the Twin 
Bridges Marriott Hotel in 
Alexandria for the third annual 
"Sunday Evening with The 
Emanons" party. Pete Eldridge '75 
was responsible for the 
arrangements at the Marriott. 


On Saturday, January 21, The 
Emanons appeared at Myers Park 
Country Club in Charlotte and 
received an enthusiastic reception 

from more than 125 Elonites. This 
was the chapter's first social of this 
type and was an overwhelming 
success. Fred Bright '67 and his 
wife, Sandy, were responsible for 
making the arrangements at the 
club, and Chapter President "Ace" 
Harrell '48. his wife, Jeanne '45, 
and a committee of local alumni 
organized the event. It was 
announced at the dance that Stan 
Butler '78 would become the new 
president of the chapter. 


After appearing in Charlotte, The 
Emanons continued their journey 
south to Atlanta, where they 
performed a post-game concert at 
the local chapter's "Super Bowl 
Party" at the Ramada Inn 
Northeast. Approximately 100 Elon 
supporters and friends watched 
Super Bow! XVIII together before 
enjoying a one-hour performance. 
Chapter President Allen Bush '68 
headed up the committee responsible 
for this most enjoyable afternoon. 


On Tuesday, February 14, The 
Emanons presented a "Welcom:e 
Back Concert" in Whitley 
Auditorium on the Elon campus. A 
standing room only crowd of 
approximately 400 persons — the 
largest alumni-chapier-sponsored 
gathering ever — enjoyed the two 
and one-half hour performance. 
Afterward, the guests adjourned to 
West Dormitory Parlor for a 
reception hosted by Tom Bass *7I, 
president of the Alamance County 
Chapter, and his wife Sandy *67. 


On Saturday evening, February 18, 
the Guilford County Chapter 
sponsored its first gathering in 
several years and enjoyed the largest 
turnout ever at any 
chapter-sponsored dance of this 
type. Nearly 200 guests enjoyed an 
elegant evening at Greensboro 
Country Club with music provided 
by The Emanons. Members of the 
Executive Committee of the Alumni 
Association were special guests of 
the affair, which was promoted by 
chapter president Ashburn Kirby '57 
and nearly a dozen other local 
alumni. A special word of thanks 
goes to L.E. "Foots" Fesmire '24, 
who hosted this gathering.

where many students in the 1920s to 
1940s worked their way through 

All five of the Lynch children, 
including Dr. Bowman, attended 
Elon College and worked on the 
college farm to help pay their 
tuition. Dr. Bowman received the 
A.B. degree at Elon, the M.A. 
degree at UNC Greensboro, and the 
doctoral degree from UNC-Chapel 
Hill. She has worked in the public 
schools for 39 years, 16 years with 
the Burlington City School System 
and 20 years with the Alamance 
County schools. 

Mr. Bowman received the A.B. 
degree from Elon in 1944, working 
second shift to meet expenses. 
Following the war, he received a 
Master's Degree in engineering from 
Duke University and the Master's 
Degree in business management 
from UNC-Greensboro. 

Dr. Bowman is principal of 
Broadview Middle School. Mr. 
Bowman, an engineer at AT&T, is a 
candidate for the North Carolina 
House of Representatives. 

"This is an example of an Elon 
College tradition at its best," said 

J. Fred Bowman '44 

Dr. Jo Watts Wiliams, vice 
president for development at Elon. 
"The Lynch family heritage is built 
around Elon College. The Bowman 
gift is a marvelous tribute to their 
love for the institution."

TTie executive committee of the Elon 
College Alumni Association has 
passed a resolution endorsing the 
PRIDE II capital campaign at the 
liberal arts institution. 

Sally A. O'Neill, a 1970 graduate 
and attorney with the National 
Aeronautics and Space 

Administration in Hampton, Va., 
said committee members share a 
common interest in the campaign 
and "pledge their 100 percent 
support of and participation in the 
$5.7 million PRIDE II Campaign." 
Dr. O'Neill is president of the 
alumni association representing over 
10,000 Elon alumni. 

The three-year campaign, the 
most ambitious in the 95-year 
history of the college, seeks funds 
for the construction of a new fine 
arts center, for ongoing expenses, 
capital improvements, and 

Announced last October, the 
campaign has already generated over 
$4.5 million to the college.

have been conducted in recent 
months. The Charlotte campaign, 
spearheaded by chairman John C. 
Nichols '65 and his wife 
Johnette, raised over $M,000 from 
alumni in that area. Fred Bright '67

challenge offered $1,000 to Elon 
College for every gift or pledge of 
$1,000 or more that any individual 
company or organization in 
Alamance County makes to PRIDE

By Chris Quad 

In a smalt room off the dark, 
deserted hall in Harper 
Center, a girl is seated in 
front of a panel of lights, switches, 
and buttons. A record spins on one 
of the two turntables within her 
reach. Her practiced fingers cue up 
another record and flick the red 
microphone lever to the "on" 

The girl announces the next song, 
returns the microphone to the "off 
position, and shuffles through a 
stack of records, looking for a song 
that has just been requested. 

This is a typical scene at WSOE, 
the radio station of Elon College. 
Prior to February 1, 1984, the ten 
watt signal from WSOE could be 
picked up by very few people. Now, 
with a boost in power to 500 watts, 
the sounds of the station are heard 
by more people than ever before, 
and interest in the college's radio 
program is booming. 

The road to success has been a 
long one. "During the middle and 
late seventies the Federal 
Communications Commission(FCC) 
was involved in a debate over the 
future of educational radio," said 
Gerald Gibson, faculty advisor for 
WSOE and communications 
instructor at Elon College. "There is 
only enough room for 100 stations 
on FM radio, and the commercial 
band space is from 91-108. People 
who were primarily interested in 
commercial stations looked at all 
small educational radio stations 

and decided we weren't using this 
limited resource very well," he 

In January, 1981, the FCC ruled 
that public radio had to go on the 
air 365 days a year, and WSOE was 
faced with three options: go up in 
power, go into the commercial 
band, or shut down completely. 

"At ten watts," said Gibson, "no 
one would have heard us in the 
commercial band. It would have just 
meant a slow death," he said. 

A task force was set up at Elon 
College that looked at all the media 
on campus and analyzed the 
functions they served. A report 
recommending the increased wattage 
for WSOE came out in June 1983, 
and in August, S25,000 was set aside 
for the purchase of equipment and 
construction costs. 

"Before we increased power, the 
signal from WSOE got out about 
two miles," said Gibson. "And that 
was on a good day with no birds on 
the antenna," he added. Now at 500 
watts, the signal from WSOE can be 
reached up to 25 miles away. 

According to Gibson, people 
are now talking about 
WSOE. With an estimated 
audience of 18,000 listeners, the 
station covers all of Alamance 
County and half of Guilford 
County. "Commercial stations in 
the area are talking to us," said 
Gibson. "We are large enough now 

to be a threat to their market," he 

The station, located at 89.3 on the 
FM dial, aims its programming 
towards Elon College students and 
the surrounding community. "There 
are certain songs we don't play 
because of the lyrics," said Gibson. 
"We try to direct the balance of our 
programming toward the community 
of Elon College," he said. 

The station has a variety of 
programs, including a church service 
broadcast on Sundays, a big band 
show, a late 60s show, a new music 
show, and a contemporary Christian 
music show. 

"We would eventually like to 
expand our programming and to 
coordinate it with what is going on 
in the classroom," said Gibson. 
"For example, when students are 
assigned to read dramas, we would 
like to try to broadcast them so they 
can hear what is happening," he 

WSOE has a big high school 
audience, mostly due to the fact that 
the station makes it a point to play 
requested songs. During the college's 
recent Spring Break, the station 
averaged from five to seven phone 
calls an hour. "We play requests as 
soon as we can get to them," said 

Through WSOE, Elon College 
is able to offer hands-on 
experience in radio 
broadcasting. Though Elon does not 
offer a major in communications, 
students are able to find good jobs 
in the field because they know how 
to use the equipment. 
"Students do not have to take 

classes in broadcasting in order to 
work at WSOE. This makes the 
program more attractive in 
recruiting people," said Gibson. 
"We have people coming out their 
senior year with four years of 
broadcasting experience. They learn 
production, newswork, and how to 
run the equipment. I have them 
discuss the station and make a lot of 
management decisions," he said. 

Indeed, at a recent staff meeting, 
decisions were made without Gibson 
even being present. A group of nine 
Elon College students make up the 
executive board and are essentially 
responsible for the operation of 

Pat Bell, a senior at Elon, is the 
station's general manager. Bell 
spends about 11-12 hours at the 
station a week and has been working 
at WSOE since his freshman year. 
"One of the first places I went on 
Freshman Day was the radio 
station," said Bell. "I like radio, 
and I feel this is preparing me for a 
job in broadcast management," he 

Charles Bruce, the station's 
assistant manager, says working at 
WSOE is strictly a hobby. "It's nice 
to know people are listening to you 
and that you have followers," Bruce 

Other staff members are Emily 
Besuden, program director; Tom 
Smiddy, assistant program director; 
Tammy Epperson, music director; 
Mike Wheaton, assistant music 
director; Robin Keller, business 
manager; Joe Zeller, production 
director; and Pete Koort, 
promotions and public relations 

More than 25 other people also 
work with WSOE. These students

learn every facet of the station, all 
the rules and regulations, and are 
trained to use the equipment. 
Program director, Emily Besuden 
does much of the training. "It is 
gratifying to know people appreciate 
the work we do," said Besuden. 
"Some of us do it just because we 
enjoy it, and some of us want to go 
on in the field," she said. 

WSOE is giving many students at 
Elon College the opportunity to 
participate in, and learn about, the 
broadcasting field. "The students do 
the majority of the work," said 
Gibson. "I'm primarily here to 
advise them. We try different things 
in programming, and if they don't 
work, we try other things. We have 
an open-door policy at WSOE and 
we feel that everybody deserves a 
chance," he said.

When young James Eugene 
Watts stepped off the train at 
the Elon College depot in 
September 1923 he was beginning a 
tradition that would span three 
decades and see all eight members of 
the Watts family attend Eton for 
their education. 

A young boy, just shy of 15 
Gene Watts had come to Elon 
from the farmlands of Anson 
County where his family raised 
cotton on a plantation originally 
owned by his great-grandfather. 
Gene's parents, James Cyrus and 
Blanche Rogers Watts, were 
committed to the value of 
education for their children. 
There had been some talk of 
Gene's going to the University of 
North Carolina, but it was 
ultimately decided that he should 
accompany Ruth and Mae Lowry, 
the two young daughters of a 
neighboring family, to Elon 

Gene Waits' arrival coincided 
with the building of a new Elon. 
In January of 1923, the 
Administration Building, the main 
campus facility, had been 
destroyed in a catastrophic fire. 
By September five new buildings 
were going up at the heart of the 
campus — Alamance Building, 
Mooney Christian Education 
Building, Duke Science Building, 
Carlton Library and Whitley 
Auditorium. Gene Watts helped 
to build Alamance Building, 
hauling load after load of mortar 
to the bricklayers as a part-time 

Lack of funds kept Gene from 
returning to Elon in 1924-25 — he 
taught school that year in 
Polkton, N.C. near his home — 
but he was back for the following 
year, and in 1926 two Wattses 
stepped off the train — Gene and 
his sister Sue. From then on until 
the mid '40s there would be two 
members of the family studying at 
Elon more often than not. 

Tliere were plenty of rules to 
keep men and women apart at the 
college then, but, as Gene Watts 
recalls, they "got together." One 
sanctioned opportunity was in the 
dining hall which was behind 
West. Each night men and women 
sat together at assigned tables 
which were hosted by a senior. 
Meals were rather formal affairs: 
everyone "dressed" for dinner 
and everyone remained seated 
until they were excused. 

Frank Carboy was director of 
athletics at Elon and coached 
all sports. Gene Watts was 
benchwarmer, or 
"back-hat," he 
says, on several 
teams. On one 

Page 6 

occasion Carboy was taking the 
football team on the train to 
Clemson, S.C. Not having the 
money for a ticket. Gene, a mere 
whippersnapper at 95 pounds, 
hid in an upper berth behind 
275-pound Bill CaldweU. The 
sharp conductor detected him 
however, and Coach Carboy had 
to buy him a ticket. When they 
relumed to Elon, Gene had plenty 
of lime to think about the trip 
while he beat rugs to repay his 
debt to Carboy. 

Gene Watts received his B.A. 
from Elon in 1928, and Sue, who 
had married George D. 
Colclough, received hers in 1931. 
Brother Cecil arrived as a 
freshman in her senior year. 

Cecil studied at Elon for two 
years during the height of the 
Depression, working several 
jobs to pay his way. In addition to 
working for the A&P in 
Burlington and White's Drug 
Store in Elon, he swept the third 
floor of Alamance and kept 
books for Mrs. Boney, the 
dietitian. He recalls a second 
eating esiabHshmeni called the 
"Boys Club," which was run by a 
man named Jim Brown and was 
located across Highway 100 
through the big iron gales at the 
north entrance to the campus. In 
spile of hard times, says Cecil, 
students "were too busy being 
happy to think about being 

Cecil Watts was followed by 
Dan and Hal who came in 1933 
and 1934 respectively. Dan's 
arrival coincided with the arrival 
of the first child bom to the 
Colcloughs and he lived with 
them in their home on O'Kelley 
Avenue during all of his four 
years at Elon and, as he says, 
"babysat my way through 

By 1933, the college was in 
severe economic distress because 
of the Depression and debts from 
the building campaign, and 
enrollment had dwindled to fewer 
than 250 students. As Field 
Secretary, George Colclough was 
in charge of admissions recmiting 
then. Like many others, Dan 
Watts credits Colclough with 
keeping the school alive. 

"George Colclough went out 
literally walking through the corn 
fields of North Carolina to tell 
young men and women face to 
face about the opportunities for 
an education at Elon," says 
Watts, "and he brought them 
in." One of the newest residence 
halls on the campus today is 
named in memory of Colclough 
and his contribution to the 

James Eugene Watts '28 

Sue Watta Colclough '31 

Halbert Huntley Watts 


Dan remembers several of his 
professors at Elon who, as he 
says, "pointed me in the right 
direction." Dr. T. E. Powell, Jr, 
was, he recalls, "a real dynamo." 
PoweD had already founded 
Carolina Biological Supply when 
Dan Watts was a student at Elon 
and Dan, a biology major, 
worked there on weekends. Like 
all the Walls family, Dan also 
fondly remembers Dr. A. L. 

By the time Hal Watts was 
ready to enter college in 1934, 
a tradition had been 
established. Although he had been 
offered a football scholarship by a 
college in Arkansas, the call to Elon 
was stronger, and Hal was here for 
three years — 1934-35, 1937-38 

Dr. L. E. Smith was president 
then and years later when Hal 
introduced his wife to Dr. Smith, 

BiBDchard King Watts '41 

the formidable chief executive 
said, "Mrs. Watts, I'm pleased to 
meet you. Did you know your 
husband owns two square feet of 
carpel right here in front of my 

Like many other young men, 
Hal had a penchant for being 
knowledgeable about such matters 
as a water balloon dropped 
squarely on the head of Dean J. 
D. Messick! On such occasions he 
would invariably be called before 
Dr. Smith's mammoth desk. 
"You may not have done it, Hal, 
but you know who did," Dr. 
Smith would chide. 

Hal and Dan both remember 
the legendary Elon coach D. C. 
"Peahead" Walker, but Dan 
recalls a side of Walker, not 
frequently mentioned — his 
teaching ability. He took 
Walker's course in coaching 
techniques and remembers 
him as an excellent teacher. 
"Two years after I 
graduated, 1 was 
teaching in 
YanceyviUe, N.C.

and they asked me to coach the 
basketball team," he says. "I did it 
solely on the basis of what I had 
learned in Walker's class and the 
team went undefeatedl" 

A vivid memory for Hal Watts 
is the Elon football team of 1937 
that defeated VMI, the Southern 
Conference champion for that 
year. The 12-6 victory over the 
powerful VMI team is considered 
one of the greatest games in Elon 
sports history. The 1937 team 
went undefeated except for one 
controversial loss to Appalachian 
in a game that many Elon fans 
felt should have been postponed 
due to weather conditions. 

In 1939, as World War II was 
begiiming in Europe, two 
more Watts brothers entered 
Elon — Blanchard King, called B.K. 
and Cyrus Edwin or Ed. B.K. 
studied at Elon for two years, 
before enlisting in the Air Force 
where he would become a fighter 
pilot, a member of the Flying 

Jo Watts WUUams '55 

Tigers, and fly P-40's or Warhawks 
throughout the war. 

B.K.'s preparation for his 
auspicious career as pilot was 
begun on the Elon campus 
through the Civilian Pilot 
Training Program which Dr. L. 
E. Smith had managed to secure 
for the institution. Under the 
direction of Professor A. L. 
Hook, the program offered a 
course in aeronautics and flying 
instruction at Burlington's 
Huffman Field. B.K. excelled in 
the course and, as a result, 
received an appointment to the 
Flying Cadets. 

By joining the Naval Reserves, 
Ed stayed at Elon to finish his 
degree in 1943, before going into 
the Navy, and he recalls the 
changes the war made on the 
campus — the stunning effect of 
the Pearl Harbor bombing which 
cast a big question mark on the 
future for all students, the calling 
up of the Army reserves which 
wiped out nearly one-half of the 
senior class, the influx of several 
hundred Army Air Force Cadets 
who moved onto the campus and 

received academic and military 
instruction prior to being sent to 
army bases for flight instruction. 

But some things went on as 
usual even during the War — 
student pranks for example. One 
Monday morning during 
required chapel in Whitley 
Auditorium, an alarm clock 
mysteriously went off in the 
middle of Dr. L. E. Smith's 
address. As Ed recalls, the stem 
president let the alarm finish and 
then continued his address, never 
once acknowledging the shrill 

Ed also remembers hving in the 
Publishing House across the 
railroad tracks from the college, 
students flocking to the bookstore 
at 9:30 each night for a social 
hour after enforced study hours, 
printing the Maroon and Gold (of 
which he was editor) using the 
college's hnotype machine and 
printing press in Duke Science 
Building, and the terrible fire that 
destroyed the West Dorm annex 
housing the dining hall and 

The last Watts to attend Elon 
was Jo, who entered in 1945. 
After her sophomore year, 
she married fellow student W.L. 
"Bill" WiUiams. While Bill 
finished college, Jo worked and 
took courses, one at a time, 
finishing her degree in 1955. 

For many years after her 
marriage, Jo was secretary to Dr. 
L. E. Smith, whose office 
occupied the southeast corner of 
Alamance Buiding. Across the 
hall was the student bookstore, 
containing not only books but a 
soda fountain and juke box which 
poured forth such favorites as 
"Sentimental Journey" to a 
packed house of students in their 
saddle oxfords, bobby sox and 

Professor A. L. Hook was 
registrar during Jo and Bill 
Williams' Elon years, D. J. 
Bowden was dean, W. E. 
"Buster" Butler was business 
manager, Jackie Matlock and 
Judy Burns comprised the 
Admissions Department. 

Jo and Bill Williams were also 
among the early residents of the 
Veterans Apartments, the four 
room dwellings that were 
constructed of surplus government 
materials after the war. 
These apartments, much maligned 
in later years, were "quite 
comfortable" when they were 
new, as Jo remembers. 

Although she was the last to 
come to Elon, Jo Watts has 
stayed the longest. After leaving 
to teach in public schools for 
many years, she returned to Elon in 

1969 to become a professor of 
education and is now vice 
president for development. 

Sue Watts Colclough retained 
close ties with the college through 
her husband, whose untimely 
death in 1975 was a great loss to 
all, and through the proximity of 
their home, which is located just 
one block east of,the main 

In spite of the educational 
background they have in 
common, the Watts brothers 
have all distinguished themselves 
and their alma mater — by their 
accomplishments in different 

After teaching for several years, 
Gene Watts founded Burtex 
Corporation, a distributorship of 
hosiery, in Burlington, N. C, and 
he and his wife Thelma made 
their home nearby in Haw River, 
her hometown. They have lived 
there since. In 1973, he sold the 
business and retired. 

Cecil Watts went on to 
graduate from the Strayer College 
of Accoimting in Washington, 
D.C. after leaving Elon. He then 
went to work for the U. S. 
government's General Accounting 
Office, transferred to the 
Treasury Department in 1950 and 
retired after 37 years in 1972. He 
and his wife, also a native of 
Anson County, now live in 
Charlotte, N. C. 

Hal Watts' name was drawn in 
the first draft for World War II 
and he entered the Navy in 
March, 1941. Eight years later he 
switched to the Coast Guard. In 
1971, after 30 years service and 
having lived all over the world, he 
retired. For the last six years, they 
have lived in Parkton, N.C. 
where Hal plays golf every day. 

Dan Watts went on to earn his 
Ph.D. in physiology in 1942 after 
graduating from Elon. After a 
4'/i year stint in the Navy, he 
began a career of teaching and 
research in the field of 
pharmacology. In 1966, having 
held positions at the University of 
Virginia and West Virginia 
University, he was named Dean 
of the School of Basic Sciences 
and Professor of Pharmacology 
at the Medical College of Virginia 
at Virginia Commonwealth 
University. In 1982 he retired and 
was named dean emeritus. He and 
his wife live in Richmond.

On the verge where that prairie 
halted before a great wall of 
naked sandstone and clay, I came 
upon the SItt. A narrow crack 
worn by some descending torrent 
had begun secretly, far back In 
the prairie grass, and worked 
itself deeper and deeper into the 
fine sandstone that led by devious 
channels into the broken waste 
beyond. I rode back along the 
crack to a spot where 1 could 
descend Into It, dismounted, and 
left my horse to graze. 

"The crack was only about 
body-width and, as I worked my 
way downward, the light turned 
dark and green from the 
overhanging grass. ..The SUt was a 
Uttle sinister— like an open grave, 
assuming the dead were enabled 
to take one last look— for over 
me the sky seemed already as far 
off as some future century I 
would never see. 

"I ignored the sky, then, and 
began to concentrate on the 
sandstone walls that had led me 
into this place.. .that cut was a 
perfect cross section through 
perhaps ten million years of time. 
1 hoped to find at least a bone, 
but I was not prepared for the 
sight I finally came upon. Staring 
straight out at me, as I slid 

farther and deeper Into the green 
twilight, was a skull embedded in 
the solid sandstone... 

"It was not, of course, human. 
I was deep, deep below the time 
of man in a remote age near the 
beginning of the reign of 

So the opening paragraphs of 
Loren Eiseley's The Immense 
Journey draw the reader into the 
past ages of the earth and the 
emergence and development of 
life. Within a controlling frame of 
evolution, Eiseley the eminent 
anthropologist writes of the 
immense journey of humanity in 
scientifically informed but 
metaphoric prose full of personal 
recollections and insights. 

And so the prose of Loren 
Eiseley attracted Andrew J. 
Angyal, now assistant professor 
of English at Eton College. 
Angyal had been interested in the 
natural history writer from the 
time he first read Thoreau in high 
school. He was introduced to 
Eiseley's writing by Edmund 
Fuller, the book reviewer and 
critic, when Fuller was head of 
English at South Kent School, 
Connecticut, and Angyal was an 
English master. Having earned his 
B.A. in English at Queen's 
College, City University of New 
York, Angyal went on to Yale 
Divinity School for the M.A. 
degree. He came south to Duke 
for the Ph.D. in American 
literature, awarded in 1976. By 
this time he was reading Eiseley's 
essays and books as soon as they 
were published. 

At a 1977 summer seminar, 
Angyal was lecturing on the 

anthropologist's graceful and 
eloquent prose, and his wisdom 
and insight as a scientist, when he 
learned that Eiseley had died. He 
commented on the fact that little 
had been written about him. One 
student said, "Why don't you 
write about him, Dr. Angyal?" 

Thus it was that Angyal decided 
to undertake a critical biography. 
With a load of teaching, directing 
plays, and student advising, he 
managed to devote summers to 
research and writing and one 
sabbatical during January to 
completion of the book. The 
result is a biography, Loren 
Eiseley. published last fall in the 
Twayne United States Authors 
Series by G. K. Hall & Company, 

In writing the biography, 
Angyal also wished to recognize 
some achievements of Eiseley that 
were ignored by "most of the 
literary avant-garde." For 
example, he notes in his preface 
that Eiseley "has done as much as 
anyone in his generation to revive 
the personal or 'familiar' essay 
and to extend its range and 
audience," but "his contribution 
has gone largely unrecognized." 
Perhaps the "literati feel less than 
comfortable with his subject 
matter, and scientists too often 
look askance" at fellow scientists 
who write for the general reader. 
Angyal reminds us that Van 
Wyck Brooks, critic and 
biographer, argued that "our best 
prose is svritlen by our natural 
history vmters. their field 
dismissed by science as 
anachronistic and by the 
humanities as somehow beyond 
the pale." Eiseley himself decried 
the notion of "the two cultures" 
which assumes that science and 
literature do not mix. This idea, 
he felt, is an illusion, for the 
literary natural history writer 
heralds a new humanism based on 
reconnecting mankind and nature. 

Angyal also believes that, in 
this materialistic, technological 

Dr. Andrew J. Angyal, assistant profesl 
whose most recently pubilahed woiit Is f 

world, people need to read about 
their natural world. And more 
specifically, he hopes that the 
excellent prose of Loren Eiseley 
will be read by new generations of 
readers. His biography was 
written as a reference work, one 
that may i>e circulated in libraries 
but may be used as a text for 
courses in biography, nature 
writing, and interdisciplinary 

The author says that Eiseley's 
final essays place him in the 
tradition of such natural history 
writers as Gilbert White, W. H. 
Hudson, Richard Jeffries, Heiuy 
David "Rioreau. and in our time. 
Rachel Carson, Annie Dillard and 
Lewis Thomas. 

Angyal's biographical study of 
153 pages opens with a chapter 
entitled "A Son of the 'Middle 
Border,' " Eiseley's early life 
which includes his lonely 
childhood, his interest in poetry, 
his restless wanderings, university 
education, early teaching and the 
beginnings of his "hiunanized" 
scientific writing.

six, examines Eiseley's major and 
minor prose works, some of his 
numerous lectures and articles, 
and finally his return to poetry. 
Throughout these chapters, 
Angyal weaves a close fabric of 
criticism, life story and pertinent 
information from his research and 
wide reading. The book includes a 
useful chronology, well 
documented notes and references, 
a selected bibliography arranged 
by categories under primary and 
secondary sources, and an index. 

This biography appeared almost 
simultaneously with two other 
books on Eiseley, one by E. Fred 
Carlisle, Loren Eiseley: the 
DeTdopment of a Writer, and the 
other by Leslie E. Gerber and 
Margaret McFadden, Loren 
Etodey. The Library Jonnul 
reviewer on September 1, 1983, 
said that these were the first 
"book-length studies of the 
renowned and proUfic 
mentalist." TTie reviewer wrote 

that Angyal "provides, in the 
standard Twayne format, the 
most valuable overview." Of the 
three titles, Angyal's is "the most 

Wall Street Journal reviewer 
Edmund Fuller commended the 
biography for its 
"comprehensiveness, balance and 
objectivity." It has "a refreshing 
directness and coherence." Fuller 
regretted that Twayne had classed 
the biography as a textbook 
because texts do not have general 
distribution. "It will go widely 
into schools, colleges and (one 
hopes devoutly) public Ubraries." 

As Angyal imphes, the best 
introduction to Eiseley is Eiseley. 
Reading The Immense Jonnicy, 
The Night Country, and AD the 
Strange Hours will tell anyone 
that what Eiseley writes of his 
great predecessors such as 
Richard Jeffries might be said of 

"The grim portrait of a 
starving lark cracking an empty 
snail shell before Richard Jeffries' 
window on a bleak winter day is 
from a world entirely different 
from that of the scientist. 
Jeffries' observation is sharp, his 
facts accurate, yet there is, in his 
description, a sense of his own 
poignant hunger — the hunger of a 
dying man — for the beauty of an 
earth insensible to human needs. 
Here again we are in the presence 
of an artist whose vision is 

The great nature essayists were 
not discoverers in the objective 
sense, Eiseley says. Theirs was a 
different contribution. "They 
opened the minds of men by the 
sheer power of their thought. The 
world of nature, once seen 
through the eye of genius, is 
never seen in quite the same 
manner afterward." (The N^t 

And so it is— reading Eiseley. 

The Life of Loren Eiseley 

By Mary Ellen Priestley 

Loren Corey Eiseley was bom in 
Lincoln, Nebraska, on September 
3, 1907 to a hard-working but 
impoverished father and an 
artistic mother who was stone 
deaf. Loren grew up an only child 
in a family isolated by his 
mother's attempts at 
communication and by the 
family's "keeping to themselves." 
Loren soon became aware that 
they were different from, other 

One joy was hearing his father, 
once an actor in small Midwestern 
"opera houses," talk and read in 
his "beautiful resonant speaking 
voice." But Clyde Eiseley was 
away much of the time working 
long hours trying to sell 
hardware. So Loren dug in the 
sand, taught himself to read, 
followed daring boys through city 
drainpipes, and lived in the two 
worlds of physical activity and 
imagination. Books, borrowed 
from the library and pulled home 
in his wagon, and aquariums he 
built helped him create a Ufe of 
his own. Animals took on great 
importance in his life. 

Loren was also helped by his 
maternal uncle who took Mm to 
the University of Nebraska 
museum to see mammoth bones 
and other exhibits from the 
Nebraska Badlands. 

After Temple High School 
where he began to write free verse 
and to compose conunendable 
prose, Eiseley entered the 
University of Nebraska in Lincoln 
in 1925. 

What should have been a 
four-year quest for a degree 
stretched into eight years as his 
own restlessness and a series of 
calamities intervened. The 
Depression hit. His father lost his 
job, "cast on the industrial scrap 
heap." Loren dropped out of 
classes and began riding freight 
trains with jobless men. In 
Sacramento he received word his 
father was dying of cancer. After 
the shock of his father's death 
"was no time for books," Loren 
said, and so he took a job in a 
chicken hatchery as watchman, 
checking incubators hourly. 
Exhausted, he developed incipient 
tuberculosis. For a cure, his aimt 
went with him to the Colorado 
mountains where they stayed imtil 

their money ran out. Then a 
professor arranged for Loren to 
live on a ranch in the Mohave 
Desert until he recovered his 

Sdentlst-wrller Loren Eiseley 

He drifted back to Lincoln, 
hiding and riding trains with men 
"drifting like sargasso weed in a 
vast dead sea of ruined industry." 
In the fall of 1930 he returned to 
classes, drawn back by poetry. He 
was soon contributing poems to a 
literary magazine Prairie 
Schooner. But poetry would not 
buy bread, and so Eiseley turned 
to anthropology, a new segment 
of the sociology department. 

In the summer of 1931 Eiseley 
joined the South Party 
expeditions to western Nebraska 
to find fossils and record them. 
After two seasons in the field, he 
appUed for graduate work in 
anthropology at the University of 

In Philadelphia, Eiseley became 
acquainted with Dr. Frank Speck, 
ethnologist and expert on the 
Eastern Woodland Indians. Speck 
was to become Eiseley's adviser 
and friend. 

Again Eiseley had to drop out 
of school and retmn to Lincoln to

Determination makes Ballard a pro 

Story by Steve Mano 
Reprinted from Burlington Daily 
Times- News 

For most of his 23 years, 
Quinton Ballard has been 
guided by a tenet he 
embraced as a youngster growing up 
in the eastern North Carolina town 
of Gates, a hop, skip and jump 
from Elizabeth City and about the 
same distance from nowhere. 

Everyone knows how it starts — 
"if you don't beUeve in yourself..." 

But what's important is the 
eliding, " can anyone else 
believe in you?" 

That, as much as anything, 
pushed the former Elon College 
gridiron standout to believe he could 
play professionaJ football despite 
being snubbed on NAIA 
All-America teams and in the pro 

It guided him through a confusing 
time when the New Jersey Generals 
of the fledgling United States 
Football League released him after 
the first day of a two-day 

It propelled him to prove to the 
Baltimore Colts that a 6-3, 
265-pound defensive tackle from 
two-time NAIA national champion 
Elon College is as good or better 
than some of those big-namers 
walking around with chips on their 
shoulders and dollar signs in their 

It gave him the gumption to 
rehabilitate a knee injury that could 
have ended his career with Colts 
before it even began. 

And it's behind the belief that 
with the social sciences degree he'll 
have earned by this time next year, 
he won't be just another successful 
athlete, but a "successful human 
being," as well. 

"I have a lot of pride, I believe in 
myself," said Ballard recently while 
lounging under sun-splashed skies 
during a break in his studies. "And 
if someone says I can't do 
something, it becomes a challenge. I 
react to challenges in a positive way. 

"That I could play in the NFL 
was something I wanted to prove to 
myself and those people who 
thought I couldn't. 

"I felt I should have been 
drafted. By not getting drafted, they 
were saying I was a sorry athlete, 
that I didn't make the grade. I 
didn't believe that. 

"Making the team and playing 
well was the only way to throw it 
back in their faces. I wanted to say, 
'I'm not a sorry athlete, you're 
sorry judges of talent." 

Talent is something Ballard, who 
has added 25 pounds of muscle since 
completing his collegiate career in 
1982, has always possessed. 

In pickup games with friends in 
Gates, he envisioned himself as a 
quarterback. Ironically, his glory 
was to come throwing them — and 
others who got in the way — to the 
ground. Hard. 

He was a four-year starter at 
Elon, made the All-SAC-8 and 
All-District 26 teams, but never 
All-America. Although he's the only 
player off the 1980 and 1981 
national championship squads to 
land a pro contract, by most he's 
just remembered as one of a group 
of defensive linemen that ranks 
among the best the South Atlantic 
Conference has ever seen. 

"I felt all along that maybe I 
should have gotten more honors," 
said Ballard, who finagled a 
three-year pact with the Colts at 
better than the $40,000 minimum 
per year for rookies. "I really didn't 
feel a challenge here. I didn't play 
up to my potential. Only in the big 
games did I really let go. The bigger 
the game, the better I play. 

"I've always felt the best athletes 
play better under pressure." 

His first taste of pressure in the 
world of professional football, 
however, wasn't handled well. 

Admittedly nervous and somewhat 
in awe of the situation, Ballard 
lasted just one day of the Generals' 
January 1983 mini-camp. 

"I knew it was political. I knew I 

was the most talented lineman there. 
It discouraged me. I thought, well, 
if a minor league team cuts me after 
one day, what will happen now? 

"I said to myself, there's only one 
way to find out. 1 wasn't going to 
take 'no' from anyone." 

When the Colts offered him a 
tryout in April as a free agent, 
Ballard jumped at it. 

This time, he knew the score and 
handled the pressure like a seasoned 

"I felt like I was in the same 
situation I was in in New Jersey," 
said the eloquent young man. 
"Since I was from a small school, it 
made it harder on me. 

"They didn't know the name of 
my school, let alone mine. A player 
from a small school has to be twice 
as good as a guy from some 
big-name school like Nebraska, 
Oklahoma, Notre Dame or North 
Carolina. I had to worry about them 
believing in those type of guys. 

"The biggest pressure on me was 
to do something to gel their 

He listened in meetings. He knew 
what he was supposed to do. which 
helped eliminate mental mistakes 
and survive the coaches' mind 
games. And figuring he was in 
better shape than the others, he 
outhustled everybody. 

By the second preseason game, 
Ballard was starting. But in the next 
outing against the New York Giants, 
he went down with a knee injury 
that sidelined him three weeks. 

"That was my biggest setback," 

Quinton Ballard, former Eloa 
grldder, now plays for the 
Indianapolis Colts. 

he said. "Mentally, that was a 
throwback. 1 hadn't made the team 
and 1 didn't know how thai'd affect 
their (the coaches') judgment. 

"I worried about things slipping 
away. I was so close and misfortune 
came my way because of an injury. 
They kept on me to get well. They 
wanted to see how I'd react to 
injury. They have to have people 
who play with pain." 

He worked hard, and by the third 
game of the regular season he was 
back, coming off the bench. 

When former Tar Heel Donnell 
Thompson was injured against 
Philadelphia in the ninth game. 
Ballard stepped into a starting role 

His belief in himself was paying 
off. The next week against the New 
York Jets, Ballard was awarded the 
game ball as defensive player of the 
game. All he had done was better

Bryant Colson 

Bryant Colson '80, Elon's first block SGA president, 
retroces his rood to political success 

By Jan Elliot 

Before Bryant Colson was old 
enough ro read or write, he watched 
television. But unhke many 
youngsters, Colson wasn't drawn to 
cartoons or to commercials, and his 
heroes weren't found in adventure 

"When the news came on, I'd 
watch it and listen for certain 
names," said Colson, a banking 
officer with Wachovia Bank and 
Trust in Greensboro. "My idols 
were Julian Bond, Andrew Young 
and John Kennedy." 

As a youngster, Colson also 
deviated from the norm in his career 
choice. He wanted to be a U.S. 

"My interest in politics was 
sparked at an early age," he said. 
"I remember hearing the word 
'senator' on the news and thinking, 
*AVhat is that? I wouldn't mind 
doing that. It might be nice to be a 
senator.' " 

Although he hasn't achieved that 
goal yet — he's only 25 — he did 
hold his first political office at an 
early age. In the sixth grade, he was 
elected president of his elementary 

"At the end of my campaign 
speech, I made the infamous peace 
sign," said Colson, forming the 
V-shaped gesture with his right 
hand. "I think that's what got me 
elected," he added with a laugh. 

While at Page Senior High in 
Greensboro, Colson served in 
student government, held several 
class offices and participated in 
intramural sports. He recalled an 
incident during those years that, 
perhaps more than anything else, 
encouraged him to pursue his civic 
and political goals. 

"I ran for a class office and 
suffered my first pohtical defeat," 
he said. "I had been accustomed to 
wjtming and was very upset with the 
outcome. It really hurt and I began 
to doubt myself. I decided I couldn't 
take the pain of losing and wanted 
to give up my poUtical activities." 

But, Colson's mother and 
grandmother convinced him 
otherwise. His parents divorced 
when Colson was 10, and he, two 
brothers and a sister were reared by 
the two women. 

"They told me not to give up 
because I had too much invested to 
call it quits," he said. 

Colson took their advice and 
appreciates it to this day. In his 
senior year at Page, he received the 
Luther Medlin award for 
outstanding leadership. 

Colson chose Elon College to 
further his education and graduated 
in 1980 with a B.A. in poUtical 
science and a minor in business. 

"I didn't want to leave an active 
role in high school and be lost in a 
large university," he said. "I went 
with the idea of getting involved, 
but taking it slow. On the whole 
campus, I knew one person — my 
roommate — when I arrived at 

Not one to wait for opportimity 
to knock, Colson ran for president 
of the freshman class. 

"I lost the election, but that 
didn't stop me this time," he said. 

"I ran because I was interested. I 
wanted to see where I fit in. The 
election was close and that surprised 

That same year, he did win a seat 
in the Student Senate, a position he 
held for three years. As a senator, 
Colson represented Elon in the 
National Student Government 
Association and visited many cities 
across the United States. 

During his freshman year at Elon, 
Colson wrote an English paper titled 
"Women in Tennis," in which he 
pointed out the inequalities between 
men's and women's professional 
tennis. His English professor 
subsequently asked him to join the 
staff of the school paper. The 
Pendulum, as a sports writer. 

in nis junior year, he became 
editor-in-chief of The Pendulum. 

"We had fun, produced a good 
paper and won some national 
awards," Colson said. 

Colson said he feels the exposure 
he gained as editor of The 
Pendulum helped him to win the 
college election he is proudest 
of — president of the student 
government association. He became 
the first black elected to that job. 

"When I was a freshman, I told 
myself I would run for that 
position. Student government is 
big-time politics at Elon," Colson 
said with a smile. "All through 
college, I worked towards that goal 
by participating in extra-curricular 
activities. I tried to get noticed and 
known so people would see that I 
could do a good job." 

Colson said he learned a lot about 
people, politics and the school while 
serving as president his senior year. 
"It was a very rewarding learning 

As recognition for his 
achievements, Colson received the 
ODK William Mosely Brown award 
for outstanding leadership his senior 

In 1980 Colson joined Wachovia 
in Greensboro and worked in sales 
finance before transferring into the 
retail area. He was a personal 
banker in the High Point office for 
six months before returning to

was always his first love. He had 
wanted to go to N. C. State

There are many famihes whose 
roots are deep in Elon tradition. 
Leafing through the pages of 
Eion yearbooks or the Elon 
history, one sees their surnames 
appear lime and time again — 
Newman, Rawls, Jones, 
McCauIey, Hook. Whole 
generations of these families come 
to Elon for their education. They 
leave only to send their children 
and grandchildren, or to return 
themselves to work or teach or 
serve on boards and committees. 

Collectively they have helped to 
shape the face of the institution 
and its program. 

The Watts family is one of 
these. Their history is intertwined 
with the history of Elon, and they 
retain close ties. Every summer 
they return to Burlington from 
Georgia, Virginia, Washington 
state, and all over North Carolina 
for an annual reunion. And when 
they do, they have lots to talk 
about — Anson County, World 
War II, Kappa Psi Nu— the 
fraternity to which all the men 
and the husbands of both women 
belonged — and of course Elon

look after his mother and aunt. 
While there he worked on the 
Nebraska Federal Writers Project. 
After a few months he returned 
to Pennsylvania where a Harrison 
Fellowship eased his financied 
problems for 1936-37. 

Inspired by his field work and 
by two published articles on 
archeological discoveries, Eiseley 
decided to investigate the 
usefulness of scientific 
measurements of Quaternary time 
in the study of early man, a 
subject which grew into his 
dissertation research. In June 
1937 he was awarded the Ph.D. in 
anthropology, and that fall he 
began teaching at the University 
of Kansas. 

In August 1938 Eiseley married 
Mabel Langdon, whom he had 
met in 1925 at the University of 
Nebraska. Their friendship had 
begun with a mutual interest in 
poetry. In World War II Eiseley 
was rejected for service because 
of poor eyesight and hearing. He 
spent most of the war years teaching 
anatomy in the Medical School, 
training much needed doctors. 
In the spring of 1944 Eiseley 
was offered the chairmanship of 
the Department of Sociology and 
Anthropology at Oberlin. A full 
professorship and better research 
facilities than at Kansas drew him 
to the Ohio college where he 
remained three years. 

The decade spent at Kansas and 
Oberhn was his most active 
period of research. At Kansas he 
resumed field work in which one 
of his greatest finds was evidence 
that a bison-hunting people lived 
on the Great Plains 7,000 to 8,000 
years ago. This discovery 
dispelled scientists beliefs that the 
area was uninhabited at that 

During the 1940s Eisely began 
experimenting with the personal 
essay, combining scientific 
information with his own 
experiences and insights. In such 
popular magazines as Scientific 
American, he "humanized" 
science through expression of his 
own awe and wonder and his use 
of metaphor in clarifying 
scientific concepts for the reader. 
He was also expressing a purpose 
in writing: to help people discover 
their past and its significance. 

In 1947 Eiseley was appointed 
department chairman and 
professor of anthropology at the 
University of Pennsylvania, 
succeeding Frank Speck, his 
professor and adviser. He also 
became curator of early man at 
the University museum. In 1948 
during an illness which confined 
him to his home, Eiseley began to 
revise and rework the 13 essays 
which would eventually be 
published as The Immense 
Journey, an imaginative account 
of how life evolved on this planet. 
This first book is still his most 

In 1959'Eiseley was appointed 
provost of the University of 
Pennsylvania, an administrative 
position he found incompatible 
with his research and writing. He 
resigned after two years, and was 

named the first Benjamin 
franklin Professor with time to 
write, something he had been 
doing anyway. His second book, 
Darwin's C^entury, published in 
1W8, showed his increasing 
interest in the history and 
philosophy of science. 

. A popular lecturer as America 
reacted to Sputnik, he gave six 
lectures at the University of 
Cincinnati College of Medicine on 
"Man's Quest for Certainty," 
published as The FlrmBmenl of 
Time in 1960. This book won 
majqf awards. It explains how 
man came to accept the earth and 
human existence as natural rather 
than supernatural, an account of 
the emergence of the modem 
scientific world view during the 
last three centuries. 

During the 1960s Eiseley was 
establishing himself as a literary 
naturalist, enjoying writing, even 
thotfgh some scientists denounced 
him as a "mystic." Eiseley felt 
certain affinities of interest and 
writing style with those of Sir 
Francis Bacon whom he praised 
and defended in a series of 
lectures in 1961. The lectures were 
published in 1971, with, an 
additional chapter, as The Man 
Who Saw tbrough Time. 

The Unexpected Universe, - 
1969, is a collection of 10 essays, 
each recording an encounter with 
imexpected aspects of the world, 
all symbolic. A common theme 
binds them together: desolation 
and renewal in nature. 

From 1969 to 1970 Eiseley 
worked on a book for Scribner's 
on the American space program. 
It was published as The Invisible 
Pyramid, several of the chapters 
having been given as lectures. The 
book goes beyond the space 
program to evaluate our technical 
civilization and the impasse to 
which it has brought us. 

Eiseley's last prose works, 
completed before his death in 
1977, were The Night Country and 
his award-winning autobiography. 
All the Strange Hours. The 14 
essays of The Nlgbt Country are 
in the narrative voice of an 
insomniac who watches the world 
of darkness. Eiseley is a fugitive 
Who takes the reader on a journey 
into the night country of his 
mind, past memory and outside 
of time. 

The subtitle of All the Strange 
Hours is The Excavation of a 
Life which sets the controlling 
metaphor of the book. This 
autobiography unfolds in a series 
of, "memories, dreams, and 
reflections." The book is often 
sad, but it shows the power of 
personality and thought as well as 
the meaning of a thinking, feeling 
human being living in 
evolutionary time.

PRIDE II nears $5 million mark 

Aided by the Glen Raven Challenge 
in Alamance County, the Elon 
College PRIDE 11 campaign 
approached the $5 million mark as 
the coUege's 1983-84 fiscal year 

The three-year campaign, 
announced in October, 1983, has a 
goal of $5.7 million. Year-end 
tabulations on May 31, 1984 showed 
a totaJ S4.7 million has already been 
pledged and/or paid to the 

College officials estimate that 
commitments made since those 
figures were announced may have 
already pushed the total over the $5 
nnillion mark. 

The Glen Raven Challenge in 
Alamance County has been a prime 
factor in the success of the 
campaign, according to Dr. Jo 
Watts Williams, vice president for 
development at Elon. 

Under the terms of the challenge 
Glen Raven Mills, Inc. offers $1,000 
to Elon College for every gift or 
pledge of $1,000 or more that any 
individual, company or organization 
in Alamance County makes to the 
PRIDE II Campaign, up to a total 
of $80,000. 

The challenge has already netted 
more than 80 gifts of $1,000 and the 
figure is still rising, according to Dr. 


"The Glen Raven challenge has 
certainly inspired the people of 
Alamance County," said 
Williams. "They are always 
responsive to our needs, but in this 
campaign they have responded with 
particular enthusiasm. We are 
thrilled with the results and most 
appreciative for their generosity." 

College officials are now planning 
a thank-you celebration in August 
for all those who responded to the 

In other campaign news, officials 
announced that 26 new scholarship 
funds had already been added as a 
result of PRIDE II. The funds 
account for a total of $260,000 in 
gifts or pledges to the college. 

The $5.7 million PRIDE II 
campaign is the largest in Elon 
history. Funds generated through 
the campaign will be used for 
endowment, current expenses, 
campus improvements, and 
a new fine arts center. 

In the coming months, campaign 
officials, led by Dr. Jerry Tolley, 
campaign coordinator, will be 
working to complete the PRIDE II 
effort. A number of area campaigns 
similar to those already conducted in 
Charlotte and Alamance County are

These are the elements of an Elon 
Commencement and the 1984 
version had them all. 

A total of 388 seniors received 
their diplomas on Sunday, May 20 
during the 94th annual 
commencement exercises held in 
Alumni Gym. 

One of the happiest graduates was 
Margaret Jane Zint, 52, of Mebane, 
N.C. Moments after she received her 
bachelor's degree in human services, 
her daughter, Marcy Zint 
McAdams, 23, received her degree 
in business administration. 

They were the third and fourth 
members of the Zint family to 
graduate from Elon in the last five 
years. Bill Zint having received his 
degree in 1979 and Jimmy in 1981. 

Mrs. Zint, who returned to college 
because she was "a little bored"

George Bakatsias discusses 
family gift to Elon athletics 

By BUI Hunter '52 

It has been a long, hard pull for the 
Bakatsias family, which began 
immigrating to America from 
Greece in the early 1950s. But by 
displaying strong family unity — a 
sort of Three Musketeers attitude of 
all for one and one for all — early 
adversities were overcome, and now 
each of three brothers heads a 
successful restaurant operation. 

George is at Durham, in the 
Hillandale Shopping Center, where 
his classy Bakatsias Cuisine is 
prospering. Terry operates Bakatsias 
off 1-85 near TCA, and Johnny is 
the man who signs the payroll at the 
Western Steak House near Western 

The Bakatsias restaurant 
conglomerate, if you will, took roots 
when the family patriarch, 
Nickolaos, felt that his family, living 
in a small, impoverished village in 
Greece should seek a better life. 
America, he wisely believed, was the 
answer. So to America he came, 
leaving the rest of the family 

But not for too long. His wife, 
Panagiota, followed. Johnny joined 
his parents in the early 60s, Terry 
came a few years later and George 
completed the odyssey when he 
arrived in Burlington in the early 

70s. A sister, Olga, is married and 
still living in Greece. 

"We run different businesses, but 
we remain very close as a family," 
said George Bakatsias as he sat at 
an immaculate white-clothed table at 
his Bakatsias Cuisine. "And the gift 
to Elon College is a gift from the 
entire family in honor of our father 
and mother, Nickolaos and 
Panagiota Bakatsias." 

Recently it was announced that 
the Bakatsias family will donate 
$50,000 to Elon. This money, it is 
stipulated, shall help defray costs of 
a soccer field now being completed 
on the northwest corner of the 
campus beyond Koury Field House. 

The exact name of the facility, 
which will eventually be one of the 
fmest in the state, has not been 
decided; Bakatsias Soccer Field or 
something similar is likely. 

Now, the story about why the 
Burlington family, at George's 
instigation, probably, decided to 
help soccer at Elon College: 

George attended Cummings High, 
where at that time there was no 
soccer program at all. As an 
alternative, he participated in track. 

"I can remember in Greece, all of 
us kids played soccer in the streets, 
much like kids here play baseball 

and basketball," said George. "It's 
like that throughout Europe — soccer 
is THE game." 

George became very proficient at 
the sport, and when he enrolled at 
Appalachian he became a very 
valuable member of the team. In 
fact, he was on teams that were 
ranked among the best in the entire 
country, and his talent is backed up 
by several trophies. 

With a year left before 
graduation, however, he felt his 
presence was needed in the family 
businesses more than at 
Appalachian, so he dropped out of 

It so happened that Steve Ballard, 
Elon's soccer coach, knew of 
George's talented toe, and with a 
little persistence, George was 

Dedication ceremonies for Bakatsias Field wUI be held prior to the 2:00 p.m. 
opening home soccer game on Saturday September, 8. 1984.

Elon slide show 
receives second 
highest CASE award 

Elon College has received an 
Exceptional Achievement award in 
the 1984 Council for Advancement 
and Support of Education (CASE) 
Recognition Program. 

The award, the second highest in 
the CASE program, was received for 
a multi-media slide presentation 
which was developed for the college 
in 1983 by Lothner Communications 
with support from the Admissions 

The 12-minute three-projector 
show, named "Elon College: A 
Place of Infinite Possibilities," was 
designed to fit in with a total 
recruiting package. It presents an 
overview of the college and its 
program and features outstanding 
photographs; interviews with 
students, faculty and administrators; 
lively narration; and a slide 
animation effect. 

Housed in the college admissions 
suite, the presentation is shown to 
all visiting prospective students and 
their parents. It is completely 
portable, however, and has also 
been shown to large groups in many 
locations, both on and off campus. 
Recruiters also carry small 
self-contained projectors to show the 
production to prospective students 
in high schools. 

"This show has been one of the 
most effective aids in recruiting that 
the college has ever had," stated Dr. 
Fred Young, president of the 
college. "It has considerable impact 
upon all who see it." 

The CASE Recognition Program 
recognizes achievement in various 
aspects of a total higher education 
program — teaching, recruitment, 
fund raising, public relations and 
publications. Over 4,500 entries were 
submitted in 1984 from 588 
educational institutions in the U.S. 
and Canada. Awards were given in 
58 categories. All wirmers will be 
annoimced in a forthcoming issue of 
the CASE magazine, Currents. 

Joyce Speas 
awarded highest 
teaching honor 

"It would be difficult, if not 
impossible, to overemphasize the 
contribution she has made to my 
career... I never walk into a 
classroom or help an individual 
without thinking of her." 

The recipient of this high praise 
from a former student is Ms. Joyce 
Speas, winner of the 1983-84 
Daniels-Danieley Award for 
Excellence in Teaching. Ms. Speas 
received the coveted award, Elon's 
highest teaching honor, during 
Faculty-Staff awards ceremonies in

Alumni couple 
establishes $10,000 
endowment fund 

Mr. and Mrs. Car! B. Coley have 
established a $10,000 endowment 
fund at Elon College. The income 
from the fund will be used to 
provide an annual scholarship for a 
wonhy student. 

Coley, a native of Burlington, 
graduated from Elon College in 
1952. He is currently the owner and 
president of Coley Moving and 
Storage, Inc. in Burlington. 

Betty Coiey, a 1963 Elon College 
graduate, is from Concord, N.C. 
She is currently teaching in the 
Burlington City School System at 
Marvin B. Smith Elementary 

"I went back to school after I had 
three children," said Mrs. Coley. 
"That was something rarely done in 
those days. We didn't have any

extra money to spend on my tuition 
so the college worked out a loan for 
me. Everyone was so nice and 
worked with me so I could finish my 
degree," said Mrs. Coley. 

The Coleys still have a good 
relationship with the college. They 

keep in touch with old college 
friends and attend Elon football 
games. The Coleys currently reside 
in Burlington. 

The scholarship will be added to 
the Elon College catalog as the Carl 
and Betty Coley Scholarship Fund. 

Danieley funds

honoring wife 

J. Earl Danieley has established the 
Verona Daniels Danieley Scholarship 
Fund at Elon College in honor of 
his wife. 

Mrs. Danieley, a native of 
Beaufort, N.C, is the daughter of 
the late H. Burton Daniels and Mrs 
Daniels who currently resides in 
Beaufort. Mrs. Danieley graduated 
from Elon College in 1949 and was 
secretary for Dr. L. E. Smith, fifth

for the success of her students and 
an unlimited amoimt of 
patience... Students are motivated to 
work harder in her classes when 
they see that she cares for them." 

"She is able to make students 
want to learn. She touches them in 
such a way that they come to believe 
in themselves." 

Speas has been a member of the 
Elon faculty since 1978 and serves as 
assistant professor of mathematics 
and education. While at Elon, she 
has been largely responsible for 
developing content and teaching 
methods for the Introductory 
Algebra course. In addition she has 
willingly assumed heavy advising

an honorary LL.D. degree from 
Campbell College. 

Dr. Danieley was the sixth 
president of Elon College and is 
currently the Thomas E. Powell Jr. 
Professor of Chemistry at Elon. 

The Danieleys have three children: 
Ned, a doctoral student at Duke 
University; Mark, a landscape 
contractor and nurseryman; and 
Jane, a tax accountant in Charlotte. 

The scholarship is to be awarded 
on the basis of character, need, and 
demonstrated academic potential, 
with preference given to women 
students from Carteret and 
Alamance counties. 

Speas is a graduate of Mars Hill 
College and received her Master's 
degree from the University of North 
Carolina at Greensboro. She is the 
author of a social studies textbook 
for third-graders published by 
McGraw-Hill and widely used in 
elementary schools. 

"I couldn't have been more 
surprised," Speas exclaimed upon 
receiving the award. "This is the 
greatest honor I've ever received, 
especially considering those who 
have received the award before me. 
I admire them all and to be a part 
of that distinguished group is 

The Daniels-Danieley Award is 
presented annually to an outstanding 
Elon professor. The award was 
established by Dr. J. Earl Danieley 
and Mrs. Verona Daniels Danieley in 
honor of their parents. 

Dan Watts '37 
receives VCU 
Presidential award 

Dr. Daniel T. Watts, '37, received 
a Presidential Medallion during the 
1984 conunencement exercises at 
Virginia Commonwealth 

Dr. Watts is credited with 
developing VCU's School of Basic 
Sciences into a nationally 
recognized program. He was the 
school's dean from 1966 to 1982, 
during which time it grew from a 
small program into a school that 
now ranks in the top 10 in the 
United States. He retired as dean 
in 1982 with the title of professor 
emeritus in pharmacology and 

After graduating from Elon, Dr. 
Watts was a high school chemistry 
and biology teacher and basketball 
coach before acquiring a Ph.D. in 
physiology from Duke University. 

He served as an aviation 
physiologist with the U.S. Navy 
during World War II and 
developed breathing equipment for 
aviators and determined human 
tolerance to the acceleration forces 
in aviators' ejection seats. 

Dr. Watts has been recognized 
internationally for his many 
accomplishments in teaching and 
research in Pharmacology.

enrolled at Elon where, just 
coincident ally, he decided to go out 
for the team. 

"George's joining the team turned 
things around for the Elon soccer 
team," understated Coach Ballard. 
Actually, at the time, the program 
had only one direction it could go. 
Organized a few years earlier, the 
team had never experienced a 
winning season. 

"But we were 9-6 with George on 
the team," Ballard declared, "and 
George looked like he came down 
from a higher league, which in fact, 
he had. Our program turned 
around. He had only one year of 
eligibility, and that year, 1979, he 
was named to the Ail-Conference 
and All-District teams." 

As for George, he said thanks, 
but the pleasure was all his. 

"I love soccer, and if I'd had 
more eligibility, I'd have remained 
in school (Elon) despite the pressing 
restaurant business." 

As for the gift of $50,000, George 
said that he, Johnny and Terry had 
felt for some time they wanted to do 
something for the Burlington area. 

"Burlington," he noted, "has 
been good to us. Actually, 
regardless of where we go, we will 
always think of Burlington as home. 
We like Burlington and its people. 

"And we like Elon College. It's a 
good school with a good academic 
and athletic atmosphere. 

"And I'd like to see a continued 
upswing in the soccer program 
there. The gift will give the sport a 
good, strong foimdation and, to 
have a sound program, good 
facilities must be made available. 

"In honor of our parents, we're 
proud to have a part in the 
betterment of Elon College and its 
soccer program." 

George said that if it wasn't for 
Elon's coach Ballard, he would not 
have enrolled at Elon and would not 
have as much interest (in the school) 
as he does now. 

"But there's just one little 
stipulation," he said, smiling and 
gestimng. "Steve must let me play 
on the field some time." 

No problem, said Ballard. 

"I guess we'll have to get up a 
little Alumni game next season," he

Memory contest winners 
recall. days at Elon 


Moses Crotchneld 
Oass of 1941 

It wa^ a dark and stormy 
night — or should have been 
if ii wasn't — in the 
academic year of 1939-40. 

It was the night for renewal of the 
Phi-Psi-Cli Follies sponsored by 
Elon's annual. These performances 
once had been a yearly event, but 
for one reason or another they had 
been allowed to lapse. Now, they 
were being brought back to iife, and 
rumors around the campus were that 
they would be well worth going to 

Indeed, Whitley Auditorium was 
packed that night. Students had 
responded to the appeal of resuming 
a tradition. So had many of the 
faculty. And, there in a seat close to 
the front was Dr. L.E. Smith the 
college's president. More than likely 
Mrs. Smith was with him. I don't 

A word of explanation for 
later-day students might be in order 
at this point. 

In those days, Whitley served a 
number of uses. The Music 
Department occupied the rooms at 
the back part of the building and 
utilized the auditorium for those 
students learning to play the organ. 
Students gathered three times weekly 
in the auditorium for convocations 
or assemblies. The Drama 
Department occasionally used the 
stage and auditorium for its plays 
although these were more frequently 

presented in the upstairs auditorium 
of Mooney Christian Education 
Building. Visiting lecturers and 
concert productions also were 
presented in Whitley and each 
Friday night a movie was offered 

But most important of all, 
Whitley doubled as the campus 
church. It was there that Dr. Smith, 
a preacher by profession, held 
services every Sunday morning for 
students, faculty and members of 
the community. I won't say that 
faculty members were required to 
attend but they certainly were 
strongly urged to do so, which gives 
an indication of Dr. Smith's feeling 
about the role of the church in the 
life of the college. 

But back to the story of that dark 
and stormy night, or a night that 
should have been dark and stormy if 
it wasn't. 

Some of the details escape my 
memory, but I do recall that many 
campus leaders had roles in the 
production — scholars, athletes and 
others. In keeping with my job in 
the college news bureau, I had 
learned how to take pictures with 
one of those old Speed Graphic 
press cameras. Somebody, I don't 
remember who, requested that I take 
pictures that night, so I was busily 
snapping away from the beginning. 

For that reason, I was 
preoccupied and some of the words 
and their implications eluded me. 
But by the time the production 
reached a scene wherein a group 
graphically portrayed a shotgun 
wedding, I realized things were 
getting rough. Today, such a scene 
would never rate a second thought, 
but the world was different then. 

Suddenly, from out of the 
darkened auditorium, I heard Dr. 
Smith's voice. It was a voice that 
was capable of shaking the rafters 
of the building, and that night the 
rafters shook. 

I don't remember the precise 
words that he spoke, but they were 
something to this effect: "This 

performance is to stop immediately. 
I am surprised and shocked that 
students of Elon College would 
sloop to such a presentation. This 
building also is our church and I 
will not permit it to be defiled 

That was the end of the revival of 
the Phi-Psi-Cli Follies, at least for 
that year. 

As a postscript, Dr. Smith 
demanded that film of any pictures 
taken that night either be destroyed 
or turned over to him. Frankly, I 
was afraid not to comply. However, 
years later among my belongings I 
found negatives of pictures taken 
that night. How they got there, I've 
never figured out. Nor do I know 
who took them. 

If, by chance, you are one of 
those people who have been aroimd 
Elon for a long while you may 
recognize some of the characters 
who were caught by the camera in 
the hands of an unknown 
photographer that night.

Dr. Betty Lyacb Bowman 
Qass of 1944 

In May 14, 1940, I graduated 
from Aycock High School as 
valedictorian of my class. I 
was only fifteen years old but knew 
exactly what I wanted in life — to 
be a teacher. George Colclough had 
recruited me to attend Elon College. 
Living on a farm six miles north of 
Mebane made attending Elon 
College almost impossible. Another 
problem was that Daddy did not 
have any money to pay my tuition. 
However, Mr. Colclough made 
provisions for me to enter with a 
small job in the library. 

My father, Zeb Lynch, not having 
the resources for the remainder of 
the tuition, went to Dr. Smith, the 
college president. He told Dr. Smith 
that I was one of five children who 
would need a college education. "I 
cannot move the college," he stated, 
"but I can move my family. Please 
find me a job working for the 
college." Daddy had been on the 
family farm for years. In fact, in 
1938, he had built for us a new 
nine-room home with "running 
water" — no more outdoor toilets! 
Dr. Smith made arrangements for 
Daddy to build his family another 
new home, owned by the college, on 
the hill back of Mrs. Vickers' house 
off Highway 100. Daddy's new job, 
after building the house, was to 
manage the college farm. The farm 
had a big cow barn and plenty of 

land to raise vegetables. The farm 
was to provide milk and vegetables 
for the college dining hall. 

I left the dorm after two months 
and traveled with Daddy from the 
farm near Mebane to the college for 
classes. After the house was 
completed, the family moved to 
Elon to occupy the new college 

Dr. Smith wanted the family girls 
to milk the cows while the college 
boys worked in the vegetable 
gardens. Those boys (Ralph Bridges, 
Marvin Langston, Allen Gray, 
Forrest Frazier, James Hipps — to 
name a few) still see my parents as 
an important part of their Elon 
College heritage. They visit them 
everytime they come to Elon. 

Dr. Smith paid Daddy one cent 
per gallon for each gallon of milk to 
pay for my tuition which at that 
time, if my memory serves me right, 
was $180 per semester. In addition. 
Daddy's salary was $100 per month. 

Somehow, I never thought I was 
any less privileged than any other 
student. In fact, Mrs. Smith liked 
for me to help her with her social 
events. I thought she was the most 
elegant lady I had ever known. 

My daddy constantly reminded 
Dr. Smith that I was to receive my 
yearbook whether the $180 was fully 
paid or not. It would be paid as 
soon as the cows had produced 
enough milk. I also remember that 
on some occasions I milked as many 
as twelve cows at one milking. 

On August 13, 1943, I finished 
Elon at the age of eighteen and 
received a contract to teach in a 
Guilford County High School. Mrs. 
Smith, thinking I was too young to 
enter the world of work, applied for 
a scholarship for me to work on a 
master's degree at Duke. However, 
there was no way for me to continue 
graduate work at that time. There 
were others at home for Daddy to 

In 1944 the farm was no longer 
productive. Daddy became the mail 
carrier for Route 2, Elon College, 
from which he retired twenty-five 
years later. 

I shall always be grateful to 
parents who wanted their children to 
have a belter chance than they had. 
To me Mother and Daddy are the 
most beautiful people in the world. 
I'm sure all parents care, but how 
many sacrifice as they did by pulling 
up roots of many years to help their 
children to be educated?

Ttm Moore 
Qass of 1978 

During my four years at Elon 
College I was not exactly 
known to be a "jock." This 
is not to mean that I was not 
athletic. While in high school in 
Virginia I lettered in five sports and 
assimied my entire senior year I 
would be doing the same in college. 

I found that I was a bit light for 
football, a little short for basketball, 
a step slow for track, and as for 
baseball, well, it was played in the 
spring. Spring, when the warm sun 
pulled the students out from their 
winter hibernation. When the girls 
wore those short shorts and halter 
tops. This was enough to stop even 
a "natural." 

Though I never was a true college 
athlete, it does not mean that I had 
forgotten the sweet taste an upset 
victory or a championship could 
bring to one's lips. I thought I had 
taken my last drink of this 
intoxicating brew as my high school 
days faded into labs and seminars. 

During my sophomore year I 
began to get involved in the student 
government at Elon. Another person 
in the student government who had 
been a superb athlete in high school 
himself was Bernard Carr. Bunny, 
as he was known, stands 5'6". He 
played soccer at Elon. In high 
school he had played football (once 
ran a punt back for a touchdown) 
and lacrosse. 

Buimy and I grew up in 
Charlottesville, Virginia but he went 
to a high school across town from 
mine. The only time we had met 
before college had been on the 
lacrosse field. His school had 
probably the best team in the state 
in 1974. During our junior year 
Bunny and I decided that we wanted 
to get semi-athletic again. So we 
asked for and received $650.00 to 
help fund a Lacrosse Qub from the 
student government. Our first year 
we won only three games. 

We were now in our senior year at 
Elon and om second season of 
lacrosse. The team was 
barnstorming across the South to 
play three games in three days. We 
had a small team of mostly 
Virginia and Maryland boys who 
played the game in high school 
along with a few North Carolina 
guys who were still learning. As we 
rolled into Atlanta on this muggy 
spring night we were beginning to 
question ourselves. Our record was 
0-1 due to our loss to the University 
of South Carolina that afternoon 
14-7. The following day we were to 
play Georgia Tech, a school that 
could draw from 10,000 students to 
field a team. Just a year ago they 
beat us 2S-S. Everyone was doing 
their own thing this night. Some 

were going into town, others were 
sleeping, most of us just sat around 
and tried to figure what tomorrow 
was going to be like. 

Early Saturday the team met in 
one room of our hotel and talked 
for a few hours about what lo 
expect. We then rode over to Grant 
Field for our 1:30 game. As oiu 
team of 19 players walked into the 
stadium we were in awe. Grant Field 
is huge; it seats 59,000. Never mind 
that there are only about 2,000 here 
for the game; in that large a place it 
was no consolation. 

The Georgia Tech players were 
out doing their exercises in neat 
rows. There must have been 50 
players suited up. Coaches were 
everywhere yelling at the team, 
getting them ready to play. Bunny 
was our captain and he told us to 
stretch out on our own, then pass a 
few balls around between each 
other. Compared to the military 
style rows and well-equipped Yellow 
Jackets we looked like a rag-tag 
group of guerrilla fighters out of 
South America. As Bimny and I 
looked through the heat waves rising 
from the Astroturf we noticed a 
television camera. This was great! 
Not only were we going to be 
himiiliated in front of the whole 
crowd but a home audience as well. 

Butterflies were in all our 
stomachs as we lined up on the field 
for the opening face off. This 
feeUng was replaced quickly by 
lungs gasping for air in the Georgia 
heal. On the first time down the 
field Paul Jamme' whipped a shot in 
from the left side. The next trip 
down Paul's brother, Kenneth, 
whipped in a shot from the right 
side. Suddenly the whole game 
changed. The rag tag group from 
Elon became the aggressor. We had 
put the pieces together and knew the 
answer to the question few even 
knew existed 10 minutes before. We 
could play with these guysl 

Ai the half we were still leading 
3-2. We sat in the cool shade of the 
end zone bleachers during the break. 
Everyone was pumped up. "We just 
need to keep what we're doing" was 
being said by everyone on the team. 
When we came back on the field we 
looked at the worried faces of the 
Georgia Tech coaching staff; we 
knew we could not let this one get 

The second half belonged to the 
Maroon and Gold. Paul Jamme' 
scored foiu* goals and our goalie, 
Joe Stevens, playing the position for 
just his second game, had 16 saves. 
The fourth quarter seemed to last an 
eternity as we led 9-5, 9-6, 9-7. 
Those last few seconds were perhaps 
the finest I have ever experienced in 
sports. We knew we had slain the 
giant. This small group of 
competitors which had no coach, 
few players, and even less money 
had done the impossible! 

To this day, when I think of that 
sultry day in Atlanta, I can still taste 
the sweet spirit of ecstasy as we 
counted down the clock. That small 
group of guys, who were tumbling 
all over each other in the middle of 
the field so far from home, had won 
as much as any conference 
championship or national crown. 
We had earned respect. Not only for 
us as a team, but for a brick-wsdled 
school of 2,300 students back in 
North Carolina. 

Ever since that time, when I hear 
the Messiah I sense anew that long 
past evening. Perhaps I grew up a 
little that freshman year at Elon. I 
do not know. I do know that on 
that night there was a kindred, and 
a love and a bond across the campus 
that strengthened us for that time 
and for the years ahead, because 
together we had shared the hours of 
December 7, 1941. 

DECEMBER 7, 1941 

Mary Ellen McCants Evans 
Class of 1945 

There were five of us there that 
December Sunday. Like 
typical college girls, we sat 
around listening to the big band 
sounds of the day. We munched our 
sack suppers (those brown-bagged 
baloney sandwiches, apples, and 
Hershey bars, intended for the 
evening meal), and we talked away 
our "quiet hour." The subject was 
basically "boys." 

Afternoon sim filtered through 
the oaks into our room in West 
Dorm. Light-hearted and carefree, 
we basked in our good life. 

As a dark cloud slid across the 
sky, the music ceased. From my 
small white radio came an almost 
choked voice from a newscaster. 
The Japanese had attacked 
American forces in Pearl Harbor, 
Hawaii. Virtually, our coimtry was 
now into that far-away war. 

As other news reports followed, 
more girls gathered in our room. 
Some were frightened, others 
stimned and quiet, and several 
crying. One's brother was stationed 
on that Pacific Island, and we began 
a realization that our lives and those 
about us would be different. 

That night was the annual Elon 
College Singers presentation of the 
"Messiah." We in the choir had 
rehearsed many weeks with a lot of 
joking and fun and little thought of 
the words we were preparing to sing. 

Gathering in the old library 
building about dusk for robing and 
lining up, we were still in varying 
stages of the shock of the day's 
news. Some of us begged to cancel 
the performance. Several of the 
fellows were already planning 
immediate enlistments in the armed 
services, and a petition was being 
circulated for an early Christmas 
vacation. Many were saying it would 
probably be a last holiday at home 
for a long, long time. 

It's fimny how I remember 
standing to the side with a very 
special Yankee friend and wondering 
when our good-byes would come 
and if they might be forever. 

It was then our choral director. 
Professor Pratt, spoke to us ever so 
softly and so unforgettably. 
"Perhaps," he said, "tonight you 
are thinking only of war and what 
tragedy may be there for you. Yet, I 
implore you to sing joyfully and 
triimiphantly, for that is the news 
we're about to tell. It is the finest 
thing that I can ask of you at this 
moment, for you have the chance to 
remind those who have come here

Kate Strader McAdams 
Class of 1925 

A dear friend and classmate of 
mine, both graduates of Elon 
College in the Qass of 1925, 
have kept a secret for sixty years. 
My question is, do I dare disclose it 

The event I am writing about took 
place in the fall of 1923, our junior 
year, on a beautiful Sunday 
afternoon. Sunday afternoons were 
the only time we were allowed to 

This particular Sunday was my 
first date with Mark McAdams, now 
my husband of fifty-eight years. 

The four years I was a student at 
Elon College proctors were elected 
whose duty was to keep us on the 
"straight and narrow path." One of 
our proctor's duties was to ring the 
bell when dating started and when it 
ended. Also, a housemother (so she 
was called) resided in our dormitory, 
which is old West today. She was 
our "Boss." 

One of my close friends, but not 
my roommate, and also a close 
friend of the proctor thought it 
would be fim to move the bell from 
where the proctor kept it so those of 
us dating could have a few more 
minutes together. The bell was 
moved in fim but it almost ended in 
a catastrophe. 

When the bell could not be found 
after a short himt, the proctor told 
our housemother of the lost bell. 
Meanwhile, when the "culprit" went 
to return the bell, she heard the 
housemother say that taking the bell 
was a serious offense. This remark 
was frightening, so frightening that 
she was afraid to return it. She hid 
it in her room for a few days, not 
telling anyone of her dilemma. 

Finally she told me of her 
"escapade" and asked me for help. 
We put our heads together and 
talked over possible safe hiding 
places. One day as we walked slowly 
down the hall on second floor of 
West Dormitory talking, thinking 
and looking, believe it or not, about 
halfway down the hall, very near 
one of the fire doors, we spotted a 
hole or niche in the wail just large 
enough for us to slip the bell in. The 
bell remained there for quite some 

Eventually we found an 
excellent way to get the 
"tormenting" bell off the campus. 
How we managed to do so must be 
another one of my secrets to keep. 

August, 1984

In 1978 English actor Alec 
McCowen was delivering his 
solo rendition of Si. Mark's 
Gospel to packed theaters in 
London, New York City and 
Franklin, Virginia. 

Franklin, Virginia? A little 
Tidewater town, population 7,308? 
That's the one. 

The November 22, 1978 
WashlngloD Post explains: "Tonight 
the English actor (McCowen) will do 
his rendition of the earliest gospel at 
the White House for the President 
(Jimmy Carter) and his guests... A 
week later another peanut fanner, 
one Hatcher Story, has bagged 
McCowen for a one-nighter (sold 

out) at the high school auditorium 
in Franklin, Virginia." 

Sitting sideways in his chair 
during the noonday rush at Daimy's 
Diner in Courtland — neighboring 
hamlet to Franklin — Hatcher Story 
recently recalled how the unlikely 
performance was arranged. 

"I had seen McCowen do his 
show and it was amazing," he says 
matter-of-fact!y over a plate of 
meatloaf, Danny's Friday special. 
"He recites the entire gospel word 
for word. I thought our people here 
deserved a chance to see it." 

"So I called up Bonnie Angelo — 
she's the Winston-Salem, (N.C.) girl 
who's the head of Time magazine's 
London bureau — and asked her to 
find out the name of McCowen's 

"The agent turned out to be a 
man in New York named Arthur 
Cannon and I called him. He wasn't 
much interested at first — didn't 
think McCowen would be interested. 
But I told him if he didn't work it 
out I was going to bring a crate of 
chickens up lo New York and tmn 
'em loose in his office." 

With that. Hatcher Story grins 
good-naturedly and adds, "Don't 
print that now." 

To appreciate this story, one must 
realize it is being told by a man who 
appears to be just an ordinary 
suntanned fanner having a bite to 
eat at a small-town diner — stained 
Khaki workpants, dusty brogans, a 
white cotton shirt with roUed-up 
sleeves and a pocket filled with 
pencils, glasses case and other 

But this is not just any other 
farmer. This is Hatcher P. Story — 
Eton alumnus ('38), Courtland 
landowner and peanut grower; 
restorer of old homes; collector of 
antiques and art; amateur historian; 
world traveler; and patron of the 
arts — an irrepressible man with 
thinning white hair, clear azure-blue 
eyes and a smile as warm and 
friendly as the noonday Virginia 
sunshine outside. 

As the waitress brings us a slice of 
Danny's famous chocolate pie with 
the mile-high meringue. Story goes 
on to recount other celebrities he 

Hatcher Story. To him he owes his 
reverence for the land, his love of 
history, his interest in politics and 
even his zeal for bringing culture 
and the arts to out-of-the-way 

One of Story's early memories is 
that of his father inviting Russell 
Conwell — tum-of-the century 
Philadelphia lawyer. Baptist 
clergyman and founder of Temple 
University — to speak in the 
Courtland Masonic Lodge. 

Conwell, a self-made millionaire 
in the Horatio Alger mold, delivered 
the speech that had made him a 
famous lecturer on the Chautauqua 
circuit. The lecture, called "Acres of 
Diamonds," proposed that wealth 
was everywhere to be found and 
that it was one's duty to get rich 
and use the money for the 
well-being of others. 
' The "Acres of Diamonds" 
philosophy is one the elder Story 
believed in and remnants of it may 
be seen in his son's life today. 
Hatcher Story is a man who sees 
diamonds everywhere — in the 

Mining d iamon 


Story by Nan Perkins 


has brought to Courtland — Anna 
Maria Alberghetti ("She stayed two 
days and the plumbing didn't work 
the whole time."); Helen Hume, a 
singer with the Count Basic band; 
and his favorite. Alberta Hunter, 
89-year-old blues and jazz singer 
who has been there on three 
different occasions. 

"I saw her (Hunter) sing in The 
Cookery in Greenwich Village the 
night she opened," says this 
amazing farmer, "and she was 
fantastic. I knew she had to come 

On one of her visits Story even 
ananged for Franklin High to 
award her a diploma to make up for 
the one she had never managed to 

Such is the benign audacity of the 
indomitable Hatcher Story — a man 
of many intriguing contrasts and 
contradictions. Strictly conservative 
but never conventional, highly 
opinionated but totally affable, 
seasoned traveler and small-town 
farmer — these are a few of the 
paradoxes that comprise Hatcher 
Story, a man equally at home in the 
sandy soil of the Tidewater peanut 
farms and at the annual meeting of 
the Edna St. Vincent Millay society 
in New York City's St. Regis Hotel. 

Story is one of seven children of 
the late Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Story. 
"Papa." as Story frequently and 
fondly refers to his father, made 
two fortunes buying and selling land 
in Courtland and was an avid 
historian who was intensely 
interested in the Civil War period. 

"Papa's" influence permeates 

crumbling plantation homes and 
slave quarters of Southampton 
County, in the liquid tones of 
Alberta Hunter's 89-year-old voice, 
in the paintings of the artist Tagami 
of Hawaii where he and his sister 
spend four weeks every year, in the 
young couples of the Sunday school 
class he teaches at the Baptist 
church. He is a man of unending 

Hatcher is one of two Story sons 
to attend Elon College. An older 
brother. Bill (William Joseph), 
graduated in 1934, the year 
Hatcher Story entered Elon. During 
that year, the two Story brothers ran 
a soda shop on Williamson Avenue 
where they sold hamburgers for 10 
cents and "kept a lookout to be sure 
President Smith wasn't coming while 
the students were dancing." 

Everyday when Dr. Smith passed 
by on his way to the post office, 
Hatcher Story recalls, "books flew 
open and everyone started 

Bill Story went on to coach 
football at Davidson College and 
later became superintendent of 
schools in Chesapeake, Virginia. He 
died in 1980. 

A sister, Louise, studied at 
Westhampton, now the University 
of Richmond, and was a 
microbiologist in Georgia for 41 
years before returning to Courtland. 

Hatcher Story graduated from 
Elon in 1938 with a long list of 
activities to his credit, including 
president of the student body. "I 
couldn't believe they could get along 
without me after I left," he quips, 

Page 6 

The Magazine of Elon 

remembering his days at college. 

After Elon, he taught history and 
English in the Winston-Salem, 
North Carolina schools and then 
spent 4 '/i years in the Navy during 
World War II. Later he spent three 
years in Korea. 

Following the war, Story earned 
his MA at the University of North 
Carolina at Chapel Hill. ("I got to 
hear Robert Frost read his poetry 
there," he recalls.) Afterwards, he 
served as a principal in Asheboro, 
North Carolina, before returning to 
his native Courtland. Since then he 
has been involved in a number of 
pursuits, including acting as a tour 
guide for several years — Europe in 
the summer, Australia in the winter, 
Africa somewhere in between. 

In recent years, Story's chief 
interest has been in moving and 
restoring a number of historic 
homes and dwellings that were 
slated to be destroyed. 

The Southampton County area is 
rich in historical structures. Story 
explains, because a Union general, 
George F. Thomas, was a native of 

tomahawks from the fields of 
Southampton Coimty. 

In the bathroom stands a footed, 
copper-lined bathtub — a relic 
rescued from the debris of the 
-Palace Hotel in San Francisco after 
the earthquake and fire of 1906. 

Outside the yard is alive with 
Story's collection of fowl. White 
peacocks, Canada geese, Egyptian 
geese from the Nile — their eyes 
darkly rimmed by Mother Nature to 
protect them from the glare of the 
sun — mingle with a host of more 
familiar birds and a score of kittens 
and cats. 

On the same piece of land, 
bordered by a pond and landscaped 
with boxwoods, are other homes 
which Story has restored and now 

Cedar Lawn, the plantation home 
of Civil War Major Joseph E. 
Gillette is another Story restoration. 

Built around 1830, Cedar Lawn is 
a lovely two-story home with four 
spacious high-ceiUnged rooms, 
original fireplaces and wide-planked 
pine flooring and wainscoting. 

Preserving SouthamptoD County's historical dwellings Is one of Hatcher 
Story's main concems. Pictured above Is a slave cabln'whlcb he saved from 
destructioa and Is currently restoring. 

Js in Courtland, Va 


the area and saw to it that the 
coimty was spared the worst ravages 
of the war. 

Story himself lives in a Quaker 
house built in 1764 that he moved 
from 18 miles away. The house is 
charming, with wide-boarded floors, 
open Hreplaces and a narrow 
staircase leading to an attic 

But its charm is rivaled by the 
beauty of Story's enviable collection 
of antique furniture and art objects. 
An avid collector with a reverence 
of history and a keen eye for value. 
Story buys from everywhere. Desks, 
cupboards, comer cabinets, dry 
sinks, benches and chairs stand side 
to side, practically filling every 

Memorabilia and curios cover the 
table tops — a fossil from the 
Amazon River, opium pipes from 
the Far East, pottery from Jugtown, 
North Carolina, arrowheads and 

Hand-carved comb found in waUs of 
riave cabin 

Perfect natural Ught flows into each 
room through the tall ten- and 
twelve-paned windows, enriching the 
contrast of deep wood tones and 
white waUs. 

Story's goal in restoring is to 
retain authenticity while incorporating 
modem conveniences. As much as 
possible he uses salvageable 
materials from the local area. 

He has shunned any effort to 
have the houses listed with the 
National Register, however, despite 
their historicity and the tax 
advantages. "I don't want anybody 
telling me where to hang my 
pictures," he jokes, his blue eyes 
crinkling above his good-natured 

One of his latest projects is the 
restoration of a particularly 
dilapidated slave quarters, one of 
four slated for destruction which he 
moved in one week. The cypress 
exterior of the dwelling had to be 
completely removed and replaced. In 
doing so. Story found in the walls, a 
glazed earthenware spittoon and an 
exquisite African comb, handcarved 
from dogwood. Incidentally, bricks 
being used in rebuilding the kitchen 
hearth and fireplace of the home are 
from a house which belonged to a 
granddaughter of President Tyler. 

Story's restorations are an 
investment in the future as well as a 
preservation of the past. His goal is 
to fashion a comfortable, livable 
dwelling, which he will sell or rent 
reasonably. Out of good materials, 
materials of historic value that were 

about to be destroyed, he can 
provide a home "cheaper than the 
goverameni can build low-rent 
housing," as he says. 

You don't have to talk to Hatcher 
Story five minutes to know where he 
stands on politics — just to the right 
of Barry Goldwater, William F. 
Buckley and Jesse Helms. Given the 
breadth of his interests and his 
cosmopoUtan background, his 
poUtical conservatism seems an 
anomaly in some respects, but to 
leave it out is to ignore a central 

Hatcber Story 

aspect of the man. And its roots are 
plainly there — long-standing ties to 
family and the land, a deep sense of 
individualism, an indomitable spirit 
and a faith in God and mankind. 

Affable, intelligent, kind, 
cosmopolitan yet comfortable as an 
old shoe. Hatcher Story is at once 
both interesting and interested, both 
ordinary and extraordinary. If 
you're ever in Courtland, Virginia 
around lunch time, stop in at 
Danny's Diner and ask for him. If 
he's there, you're in for a treat. 

Cedar Lawn, borne of CtvU War Major Joseph E. Gillette is a completed 
Story restoration. One of the striking features of the home Is the wide-planked 
plae flooring, wainscoting and woodwork found In every room.

A survey of the 388 members of the 
Elon College Class of 1984 revealed 
two impressive siaiisiics: 9S''/<i of the 
graduating seniors indicated that 
they would return to Elon if they 
were beginning their education again 
and 97% pointed to the helpfulness 
and individual attention they had 
received from the faculty as a major 
factor in their satisfaction with the 
college. These two statistics were, 
for me. among the most gratifying 
indicators during the past year that 
Elon College is achieving its goal of 
offering to young men and women a 
supierior educational experience. 

There were other gratifying signs 
as well. In 1983 an evaluation team 
from the highly respected Research 
Triangle Institute spent a week on 
campus evaluating our use of a $2 
million Title III grant. After the 
visit, the principal investigator 
wrote, "Of the 51 institutions 
involved in our intensive case studies 
of institutions involved in the Title 
III program, none emerged so 
positively in so many ways as did 
Elon. ..(Elon) was our paragon of 
direction for the achievement of 
institutional vitality and viability." 

A third and most important 
source of satisfaction in 1983-84 was 
the overwhelming support Elon 
received from alumni, parents, 
friends, churches and corporations. 
A greater number of donors than 
ever before gave to the college, 
indicating a high level of interest, 
approval and support. 

Alumni giving made the most 
impressive leap, rising to a high of 
30%. Just [WO years ago the level of 
participation was 15%. This new 
percentage ranks Elon near the top 
among North Carolina's private 
colleges and universities. Only 
Davidson and Wake Forest boast 
higher percentages. The increase also 
made Elon a finalist in the 
nationwide CASE/U.S. Steel 
Awards program. 

The PRIDE II campaign was 
another success. The $5.7 million 
campaign was announced in 
October, 1983 and by May, 1984 
over $4.7 had been received in 
pledges and payments. 

By giving your money to Elon 
College, you, the donors, are 
making an investment in the total 
educational program at Elon, and I 
would like to share with you some 
of the returns on your investment in 
1983-84. It is more than a 
coincidence that a successful 
fund-raising year is paralleled by an 
eventful academic year. 

New Thrust In AdmlBsloos 
The Admissions Department had 
a series of successes in 1983-84, 
beginning with a fall enrollment of 

2715, the eighth consecutive all-time 
high. The total recruiting program 
al Elon was studied intensively in 
1983, and several changes and 
improvements were made. One 
significant addition was a 12-minute 
multi-media slide presentation 
describing the college and its 
programs. The presentation was 
shown to thousands of enthusiastic 
viewers during the year and won a 
se(»nd-place award in the 
nationwide competition sponsored 
by CASE, the Council for the 
Advancement and Support of 

The strengthening of the 
Admissions program is already 
beginning to show results. At 
mid-summer applications for the 
1984-85 year were up 22% over last 
year and paid deposits were up 14%. 
These increases have enabled the 
college to reject a greater number of 
marginal students without risking a 
precipitous decline in enrollment. 

Academic Advances 

A number of significant program 
improvements were made during the 
past year. A master of business 
administration degree was approved 
by the faculty, trustees and the 
Southern Association of Schools and 
Colleges. All preparations for the 
degree program were completed, and 
the first candidates are being 
accepted for fall, 1984. 

The offering of a graduate degree 
is a milestone in modem Elon 
College history and a step forward 
in the service of the college to 
students and community. The 
decision to take this step was based 
primarily on two factors: 
community demand and college 
readiness. At a time when local 
business and industry were 
expressing a need for such a 
program, the college — fresh from a 
reaccreditation program and a 
number of major gifts — had the 
necessary faculty, library and 
computer resources to offer a 
quality program. 

Another major thrust of the 
1983-84 year was a study of the 
campus intellectual and cultural 
climate. Since Eton's mission is to 
educate the total person, exposure to 
intdlectual and cultural events is a 
primary facet of the college 
program. A faculty member, Dr. 
George Troxler, has been given 
release time in the coming year to 
serve as coordinator of cultural 
and intellectual events. He will be 
responsible for planning and 
scheduling events and integrating 
them into campus life. 

The revised and strengthened 
general education curriculum went 
into effect in 1983-84. The 

curriculum forms the core of liberal 
arts studies for all four-year majors. 
Dr. William G. Rich of the religion 
! department has been appointed 
[ director of general studies to oversee 
! the implementation and continued 
development of the program. 
The groundwork for a new 
evening school program was also 
laid in 1983-84. Beginning this fall, 
the Elon in the Evening program 
will make it possible for students in 
a number of programs to receive 
their degrees by attending night 
i courses exclusively. 
' WSOE, the college's student-run 
radio station, was increased in 
power from 10 to 500 watts during 
the past year at a cost of $25,000 
j for equipment and construction. The 
I station now has a range of 25 miles 
and is operated 365 days a year, 
providing valuable experience for 
students interested in 
I communications as a career. 

Physical Plant Progress 

The construction and renovation 
that has gone on in 1983-84 reflects 
the general progress of the 
institution. In the spring 
construction began on an additional 
124-bed modular housing unit at 
The Oaks. The facility will be ready 
for occupancy in fall, 1984. 

A new soccer field, a gift from 
the Bakatsias family of Burlington, 
N.C., has been built north of Koury 
Fieldhouse. A track is being 
constructed to surround the field. 
The old field and track will be the 
site of the new Fine Arts Center. 

Construction also began on a 
greenhouse to serve the biology 
department. It is located at the 
corner of Lebanon and O'Kelley 
Avenues adjacent to the main 

Duncan Court, a gift of Mr. and 
Mrs. W.H. Duncan of Greensboro, 
N.C., was added between Smith and 
Carolina residence halls and has 
already proved a popular and 
attractive gathering place for East 
Area residents. In addition, a number 
of brick sidewalks were completed 
within the wall, adding to the beauty 
of the campus. 

The Moonelon Conference Center 
one mile west of the campus was 
purchased from the United Church 
of Christ and renovated. Now 
known as The Lodge, it will serve as 
a site for educational and social 
events for faculty, staff and 

The Challenges Ahead 

I have listed some of the successes 
of the 1983-84 year. As investors 
you are entitled to know the 
challenges that the institution faces 
as well. Currently, Elon faces three 

Dr. Fred Young 

major hurdles. The first is intense 
competition from lower-priced, 
state-supported institutions. Elon 
and all other private colleges and 
universities must find ways to 
remain affordable. This includes 
actively seeking increases in the 
North Carolina Legislative Tuition 
Grant program, keeping tuition 
costs down, and providing a full 
range of financial opportunities. In 
each of these areas your support- 
financial, political, and moral— is 

Elon's second challenge is to build 
a stronger, more stable financial 
base through an increased 
endowment. Through the PRIDE II 
campaign, Elon's endowment has 
been raised substantially, but this 
is only the beginning. To reach the 
heights of excellence, Elon must 
have the security and resources a 
large endowment offers. 

A final and immediate challenge 
that Elon faces is the building of a 
new fine arts center. The demand 
for this additional programmatic 
facility is great, and the rewards of 
having it will extend far beyond the 
immediate benefits of extra space. 
Tlie completed center will serve as a 
central location for cultural events 
for the entire community and as an 
impetus for a greatly expanded 
thrust in the fine arts both on 
campus and off. 

To all who made gifts to Elon 
College in 1983-84, I offer sincerest 
appreciation. The growths and gains 
that I have described in this report 
are some of the more visible returns 
that you have had on your 
investment. It is my hope that in the 
educational experience of any 
student you could find other 
retiu-ns, less visible perhaps, but no 
less dramatic in terms of impact. 

In addition, I solicit your 
continued support. Our vision at 
Elon is to provide nothing less than 
the best for the students we serve. 
Our success is dependent upon your 
interest and involvement.

Donors give in record numbers 


For the second consecutive year 
alumni, parents, and friends gave in 
record numbers to Elon College. 

According to Director of Annual 
Giving Jerry R. Tolley, the 
percentage of alumni giving at Elon 
topped 30% during 1983-84, up 
from 15.4% just two years ago in 

"Elon has come a long way in the 
past two years to secure for itself an 
outstanding record in alumni 
giving," said Tolley, former 
national football coach of the year. 
"In fact, based on last year's alumni 
giving to all colleges and universities 
in North Carolina, both private and 
public, Elon should now rank with 
Davidson and Wake Forest as the 
three leaders in alumni 

All groups of contributors had 
impressive increases in the number 
of gifts made to the college during 
1983-84. Gifts from alumni 
increased from 3,344 to over 4,000. 
Friends' donations increased from 
905 to 1,085, while 892 parents 
contributed in 1983-84 compared to 
only 746 the previous year. 

The Great Alamiil PbooBlhon 

Other interesting news centered 
around the annual Elon College 
Phonathon and the results of the 
Great Alumni ChalleDge. issued by 
[he younger alumni. The 
"challenge" bragged that the alumni 
departing the campus after 1968 
would have more donors to the 1984 
Phonathon than those "old folks" 
who left the campus before 1968. 
The final results are now in and 
according to W. David Wall, Elon's 
director of the administrative 
computer center, the Grand Old 
Alumni prevailed by the narrowest 
of margins — just 23 donations, out 
of a total of 2,515 received from ail 
alumni, or a margin of .009%. 

Tolley cautioned the older alumni 
against resting on their laurels, 

"There is already talk of another 
Phonathon challenge by the 
'youngsters' next year," he stated, 
"so the "old folks' shouldn't get too 
cocky. In fact, because of their 
percentage of increased 
participation, some young alumni 
are already claiming a 'moral 
victory' this year!" 

Tbe Top Classes 

Eight aJumni classes had giving 
records of 50% or more 
participation in 1983-84: 1917, 1920, 
1924, 1927, 1928, 1929. 1936 and 
1937. The class of 1927 claimed the 
distinction of leading all classes in 
alumni participation as 18 of its 30 
members made gifts for a 60% 
participation ratio. The class of 1937 
followed closely at 59% as 35 of the 
60 on that class roll contributed. 

Ten classes achieved a 40% - 49% 
participation record. The 1925 
alumni led this group with 48% 
contributing. They were followed by 
the class of 1938 which stood at 
46%. Other classes who donated in 
the 40% - 49% range were the 
classes of 1926, 1930, 1931, 1940, 
1942, 1943, 1945 and 1947. 

Classes Above 30% PartlclpaUon 

There were 27 additional classes 
whose percentage of participation 
was between 30% - 39%. The 
classes of 1938 and 1939 led this 
group with 39% and 38% 
respectively. The remaining 25 are 
listed in the alumni giving rolls. 

Dr. Tolley noted that two years 

ago there were 36 classes whose 
participation ratio was below 20%. 
This year he was happy to report 
that there was not a single one. In 
fact, of the 77 classes that still have 
alumni on their rolls, 44 had 
participation ratios of over 30%. 

Tolley also noted that even 
though the young alumni did not 
win the "Great Alumni Challenge" 
they have set a standard of giving 
for Elon that is not equaled at other 
colleges. Five classes had donors 
totaling over 100 gifts. These include 
the classes of 1970. 1973, 1976, 1982 
and 1983. The classes of 1969, 1971, 
1975 and 1981 had over 90 of their 
classmates make donations. These 
totals represent a great future for 
alumni giving at the college. For the 
record, the class of 1973 leads all 77 
of Elon's classes with 122 donors . 

Dr. Jo Watts Williams, vice 
president for development, praised 
alumni, parents and friends for their 
outstanding record of giving. 

"Elon's alumni, parents and 
friends are the finest people in the 
world. Every gift we receive, from 
the smallest to the largest, is greatly 
appreciated and helps to keep Elon 
among the finest institutions in our 
stale today." 


special recognition is given to Elon College donors who make 
significant gifts for the Annual Fund, academic scholarships 
and awards, academic program support, endowment, and 
capital projects. Membership in the ORDER OF THE OAK is 
awarded to alumni and friends who have contributed $100,000 
lo Elon through the new ELON LIFE FOR ENDOWMENT 
program. The CHAIRMAN'S COUNCIL honors donors who 
gave $5,000 or more. Membership in the PRESIDENT'S 
CLUB is extended to those individuals who contribute 
S1000-$4999. A contribution of $500-5999 entitles donors to 
membership in the OAK CLUB. The A.L. HOOK CLUB 
membership consists of those who have contributed $100- $499. 
The amount of an individual's total gifts for all eligible 
purposes during the fiscal year ending May 31, 1984 
determines the qualifications for giving club membership.

Contribuiions lo the Elon College athletic program for 
1983-84 exceeded the $100,000 mark -for the second 
consecutive year, according to Dr. Jerry R. Tolley, athletic 
scholarship fund director. Of this total, over $67,000 was 
donated to the general operating fund while $30,000 was 
designated to endowed scholarship funds. An additional 
$3,900 was donated to other special projects, bringing the 
total to $100,900. The Athletic Scholarship Fund also 
received fourteen additional gifts credited as gifts-in- 
kind, accounting for another $10,000. 

For the June 1, 1983 - May 31, 1984 fiscal year, over 743 
loyal alumni, parents, and friends placed their names on the 
honor roll of donors in the college's Fightin' Christian Club. 

One very special pledge was made to the Elon College 
Athletic Department during the past fiscal year from the 
Bakatsias family of Burlington. The gift was obtained 
through George Bakatsias who was one of the first recruited 
soccer players at Elon. According to Jerry Tolley, the 
$50,000 contribution represents the second largest gift ever 
made to the Elon Department of Athletics. It will be used lo 
develop a soccer-playing facility adjacent to the Koury 
Fieldhouse. The field will be named Bakatsias Field. 

Two new athletic scholarship endowments were established. 
The John L. Frye Scholarship was funded by Mr. John 
L, Frye of Robbins, North Carolina, a student on the 
campus during the early '40s. The second endowment was 
established by the friends and family of Mr. L.J. "Hap" 
Perry. "Hap" was an all-state athlete at Elon and served his 
alma mater as a three-sport coach after World War II. Both 
of these scholarship endowments will be awarded for the first 
lime in the spring of 1985. 

In reviewing the year, Tolley issued his sincere thanks on 
behalf of the entire athletic staff to everyone who gave their 
support for the Elon College athletic program during the 
1983-84 fiscal year. He also had special praise for Marvin 
Comer, who chaired the Athletic Scholarship Fund drive.

For Fine Arts Center challenge 

Kresge awards largest grant 
in Elon College history 

Thank goodness we sent the trunks ahead! 

A typical scene takes place on opening day for fresbmen — moving In. Over 
2790 students enrolled for classes at E3oo this fall — tbe elgbtb consecutive 
ali-time high In enrollment. Thirty students were enrolled for classes In the 
new MBA program. President Fred Young reported that the opening was one 
of the smoothest In college history. 

Jordan Center named 

Rep. John Jordan pledges 
$200,000 to PRIDE II Campaign 

State Rep. John M. Jordan has 
made a $200,000 pledge to the Elon 
CoUege PRIDE II Campaign, 
college officials have announced. 

Half the funds wilt be used to 
increase a scholarship fund he 
established in 1979, an endowment 
10 provide annual scholarships to 
deserving students in Rep. Jordan's 
district. The additional $100,000 will 
be donated to meet the Kresge 
Challenge, a million-dollar fund 
raising effort to complete the 
proposed fine arts center planned 
for construction next year on the 
liberal arts campus, according to 
Elon President Fred Young. 

"This generous gift by Rep. 
Jordan represents one of the largest 
donations by "a single individual in 
Elon's 95-year history," Young said. 
"Rep. Jordan has followed in the 
footsteps of his late father, U.S. 
Senator B. Everett Jordan, in 
providing major support to this 
institution. Sen. Jordan was a 
long-time supporter and trustee of 
Elon. He also provided funds to 
help build the new gym which bears 
his name. Rep. Jordan's 
brother-in-law, Roger Cant Jr., is 
currently serving as an Elon trustee. 
We are grateful for John's 
generosity and for continuing the 
family tradition." 

Rep. Jordan said, "I have been a 
lifelong resident of Alamance 
County and know firsthand the 
outstanding job Elon has done in 

educating the young men and 
women of this area. Elon College is 
in my home county, and I will do 
anything 1 can to help local students 
have the advantage of studying at an 
educational institution of this 

A native of Alamance County, 
Rep. Jordan represents Alamance, 
Rockingham and part of Stokes 
counties in the North Carolina 
House of Representatives. Jordan 
was first elected to the N.C. House 
in 1974. He was elected to the State 
Senate in the Democratic primary 
election in May and will begin 
serving the Alamance Caswell 
county district in that chamber in 
January. The past two sessions he 
has served as chairman of the House 
Committee on State Personnel. 

President Young also said, "Rep. 
Jordan has made education a top 
priority as our representative for the 
eight years he has served in the 
House, and 1 know as our senator 
he will continue to support 
educational issues." 

Rep. Jordan added, "We all pay 
taxes which support our public 
schools, but private educational 
institutions depend on individuals to 
help them. It is important that we 
have strong public and private 
schools as both are vital in the total 
scope of our educational systems." 

Jordan received the bachelor of

The Kresge Foimdation has awarded 
a $250,000 challenge grant to the 
Elon College PRIDE II Campaign. 
The grant is the largest foundation 
gift in the 95-year history of the 

The funds will be awarded when 
the college raises an additional 
$750,000 to build a proposed fine 
arts center. The fine arts center is 
part of the $5.7 million capital 
campaign begun late last year and 
scheduled to run through 1985. At 
the end of June, over $4.7 million 
had been pledged. The challenge 
must be met by July 15, 1985. 

College officials expressed 
confidence that the remaining 
$750,000 would be raised and the 
fine arts center would be completed 
on schedule. Groundbreaking is 
scheduled for this winter. 

Dr. James B. Powell, chairman of 
the PRIDE II Campaign, which 
stands for "Providing Resources for 
Institutional Devlopment at Elon." 
said the Kresge chsillenge would 
provide an impetus to complete the 
campaign on schedule. 

"With over 80 percent of the 
campaign total raised in the first 
year and well over a year remaining, 
we feel confident that Elon College 
will meet this new challenge and 
qualify for The Kresge Foundation's 
quarter million dollars," Powell said 
at a news conference held on the 
coeducational campus Wednesday. 

Elon College is one of 128 
charitable institutions awarded new 
grant commitments from 1,275 
proposals considered by The Kresge 
Foundation, located in Troy, 
Michigan. The majority of these 
grants were toward projects 
involving construction or renovation 
of facilities. 

Like Elon, most grant recipients 
had raised initial funds toward their 
respective projects before requesting 
foundation assistance. Grants were 
then authorized on a challenge basis, 
requiring the raising of the 
remaining funds, thereby insuring 
completion of the projects. 

The Kresge Foundation is an 
independent, private foundation 
created by the personal gifts of 
Sebastian S. Kresge, who amassed a 
fortune as founder and chairman of 
the board of the S.S. Kresge 
Company, now know as K-mart 
Corporation. Although not affiliated 
with any corporation or 
organization, the foundation ranks 
among the 10 largest in the country, 
and since its establishment in 1924 
has authorized more than $484 
million in grants. 

The foundation makes grants to 
institutions in the areas of higher 
education, health care and related 
service, the arts and humanities, 
social services, science, conservation, 
religion, and public policy. 

When completed, the proposed 
fine arts center, which will be 
constructed in phases, will house the 
entire Elon College Fine Arts 
Department, including art, music, 
and drama. Incorporated in the 
facility will be theaters, faculty 
offices, music library, practice 
rooms, a galleria, and general 
service rooms. 

The fine arts center has been 
referred to as "the most important 
cultural facility to be constructed in 
Alamance County during the 
remainder of this century" by Elon 
College President Fred Young. 

Dr. Fred Yoang, right, thanks Rep. John M. Jordan for his pledge to the 
PRIDE n campaign. Jordan's gift Is one of the largest In college history.

Friends of the 
Elon Library 

Books are the "treasured wealth of 
the world, the fit inheritance of 
generations of nations," said Henry 
David Thoreau. 

The newly organized Friends of 
the Library of Elon College hopes to 
store up some of that treasure at the 
Iris Holt McEwen Library through 
its various activities and sponsorships. 

A board of eighteen men and 
women have joined forces to 
"promote the interests of the library 
and to provide enrichment for its 
total resources and facilities." To 
this end it will sponsor programs for 
its members, edit a newsletter, offer 
services to the community, and be a 
vehicle to receive support for the 
academic interests of the college. 

Academic excellence will be the 
emphasis throughout. By 
encouraging total use of the library 
facihties, by inspiring student 
interest in library careers, by gaining 
support from faculty, retirees, staff 
and alumni who feel that academic 
excellence is a priority today, and by 
passing on to students this 
"treasured wealth" as a fit 
inheritance, the Friends will help 
insure that Elon College will have a 
facility of promise for academic

Centennial goals announced 

Young says Elon will raise 
admissions requirements 

President Fred Young has 
announced lo ihe faculty a major 
policy change in admissions 
standards for Elon College. 

Ai Ihe first faculty meeting of the 
1984-85 year, Young announced thai 
over the next four years the college 
will gradually raise the requirements 
for admission. 

Young said he wanted the college 
lo be generally recognized as "an 
excellent school for highly motivated 
young men and women" by 1989, 
when Elon will celebrate its 100th 

"We are not a university, nor 
should we aspire lo be," said 
Young. "Neither is it our role to 
educate solely the academically elite. 
But we can and should aim for the 
top among the private institutions in 
the state with missions similar to 
ours. It is a position that is not 
clearly occupied by anyone, and it is 
a position that Elon can conceivably 

Young said he had approved 
stricter admissions standards for 
entering freshmen next year. A 
slightly higher admission standard 
this year resulted in a substantial 
increase in the number of students 
rejected, although a record 
enrollment was set for the eighth 
-year in a row. 

Enrollment for 1984-85 stands at 
2,790 men and women. 

"Tightening admissions standards 
in a time of a 20 percent decrease in 
the hi^ school population, an 
ever-widening tuition gap and the 
continued expansion by the state 
system is an ambitious goal," said 
Young. "There is a strong 
possibility that the goal simply 
cannot be achieved. All of us must 
be psychologically prepared for that 

To achieve the goal, said Young, 
Elon must attract more good 
students and retain more of those 
students who are enrolled. 

"The best way to attract new 
students is to provide a satisfactory 
program for those who are already 
here," he said, noting that surveys 
show that most students decide to 
enroll at Elon because their friends 
at the college are satisfied and 
recommend it to them. 

"We must keep current students 
satisfied by enabling them to 
succeed," he said. "We enable 
students to succeed, not by lowering 
standards, which is false success, but 
by placing them in appropriate and 
effective programs, helping them to 
see the purpose of education, 
establishing mentor relationships 
frith them, and involving them in 
student activities." 

The president told the faculty 
members that they hold the key to 
the success of such an ambitious 

"Success in education can only be 
measured by the quality of 
experience the individual student 
has, and that experience is chiefly in 
faciJty hands. You are doing an 
outstanding job. 

"We advertise mentor 
relationships as a strength, and, 
obviously, our claims are justified," 
he said. 

Young stated that he did not 
envision any significant growth in 
size for Elon by 1989, and, 
consequently, the college should not 
need much additional space. 

In terms of facilities, he said that 
by the Centennial Year the fine arts 
center should be completed and the 
college should be "well on the way 
toward upgrading the science 

Young also proposed other goals 
for the Centennial Year. They 
include a fully operational general 
studies program, a comprehensive 
cultural and intellectual affairs 
program, an expanded religious life 
program, an enhanced career 
placement program, an Annual 
Fund of $500,000, and an 
endowment of $10 million. 

He also expressed a hope that by 
1989 the North Carolina Legislative 
Tuition Grant would be tied by 
formula to the subsidy for students 
in public institutions. 

"Unless this goal is achieved," 
said Young, "It is unlikely Elon can 
achieve its other goals because the 
tuition gap may well become

support and interest in our Fine Arts 
Center," said Williams. 

Elon makes 
cable debut with 
weekly show 

"Rituals" may be the first 
association you make between Elon 
College and fall television, but for 
many North Carolina residents it 
won't be the last. 

"Elon in Review," a weekly 
cablevision program featuring the 
people and events of Elon College, 
is now being shown over the local 
access cablevision channels in 
Alamance and Guilford counties 
every Thursday evening. 

In Alamance County, "Elon in 
Review" is shown on channel 32 at 
7:30 p.m. Other nearby local 
channels have also expressed an 
interest in the show. 

The show features interviews with 
campus personalities, highlights of 
athletic events, campus news, and 
coverage of the cultural and 

intellectual activities. 

The weekly show, an ambitious 
project, is the result of the efforts of 
Ray Johnson, coordinator of 
television services and assistant 
professor of communications, and a 
handful of staff and student 
assistants. Johnson is a former 
member of the history faculty at 
Williams High School in Burlington, 
N.C., where he also served as 
videotape coordinator. 

Johnson produces the weekly 
show using equipment recently 
purchased by the college which 
allows location video recording. The 
equipment will eventually be used in . 
television communications courses.

Elder and Comer 
spearhead annual 
giving drives 

Two distinguished Eion College 
award winners will lead the 1984-85 
annual giving drives, according to 
Dr. Jerry R. Tolley, Elon Director 
of Annual Giving. 

James P. Elder, Jr., 1983 
Alumnus of the Year, will chair the 
college's Annual Fund drive. Dr. 
Elder, a Burlington native, 
graduated from Elon College in 
1960 with a bachelor of arts degree 
in history. He received his master's 
and doctorate degrees in English 
History from the University of 
North Carolina — Chapel Hill. 

Dr. Elder served as a history 
professor at Elon College from 1963 
to 1973 and was selected three times 
by the student body to receive the 
Outstanding Professor Award. He 
was also noted for his sponsorship 
of the Liberal Arts Forum at Elon 
College. Dr. Elder presently serves 
as the chief executive officer of The 
James P. Elder and Company 
consulting firm in Washington, D.C. 

Marvin Comer, a former recipient 
of the college's Citizen's Service 
Award, will again lead the Athletic 
Scholarship Fund Drive. He was 
elected president of the Fighting 
Christian Club Advisory Board for 
the 1984-85 fiscal year. He will be 
assisted by president-elect Haywood 
Simpson and second-vice president 
Anne Morrison. Mr. Comer also 
serves the college as a member of 
the Presidential Board of Advisers. 

Comer, who is now retired, had a 
distinguished career in the textile 
industry. During his career he has 
been active in community and civic 
affairs. He is a member and former 
chairman of the Burlington 
Recreation Commission, and a 
member and former officer of the 
Burlington YMCA. 

Mfurin H. Comer 

"We are extremely grateful to 
these two outstanding men for 
agreeing to serve in these vital 
functions," said Dr. Jerry R. 
Tolley, Director of Annual Giving. 
"Elon is fortunate to have dedicated 
supporters like Jim Elder and 
Marvin Comer." 


A high goal has been established for 
the 1984-85 Elon College Annual 
Fund according to Dr. Jerry Tolley, 
director of annual giving. Simply 
slated, Elon intends to capture the 
number two position in alumni 
participation among all North 
Carolina colleges and universities. 

Two years ago the percentage of 
alumni making gifts to Elon College 
stood at 15%. By the end of the 
1984 fiscal year, however, the figure 
had surged to 30 "^o, ranking Elon 
third in the state in alumni 
participation surpassed only by 
Wake Forest University and 
Davidson College. 

The goal this year is to overtake 
Wake Forest and assume the 
number two spot. "Exactly how 
high we will have to go to surpass 
Wake Forest remains to be seen," 
says Tolley. "Right now we don't 
have their figures from last year. 
But whatever it takes, I know that 
Elon alumni can do it." 

"In 1985 we will go after 
Page 4 

Davidson's number one spot," he 
added, "but that is another 
challenge. Right now we are full 
steam ahead after Wake Forest." 

During the last two annual fund 
drives Elon has added a phenomenal 
1850 new alumni donors, Tolley 
reported. This year, 1984-85, he 
expects to add another 1,000. 

"The only disappointment of last 
year's campaign," says Tolley, "was 
that a significant number of past 
contributors failed to make a gift. If 
Elon is to achieve its ultimate goal 
of becoming number one, every 
Elon alimmus and alumna would 
have to consider making a gift on an 
annual basis." 

In a recent letter former Eton 
professor and 1984-85 Annual 
Giving Chairman, Dr. James P. 
Elder '60. called on all Elon alumni 
to accept the challenge to pass Wake 
Forest for the number two position 
in alumni participation among 
colleges and universities in North

E. Cooper Mattocks 
Qass of '79 
[Kappa Sigma] 

(remember it clearly, as if it 
happened yesterday. It was 
the spring of "78" and most 
of the Elon sororities were enjoying 
their yearly banquet one weekend 
night. It just so happened that 
nothing was going on at Elon that 
night or at "Bill's Blue Room" and 
the "Lighthouse." What to do? 

With our bellies fuU of "ale" and 
women on the brain, "Leeper" and 
I decided to have some fun. Our 
master plan was to "worry" the 
sisters of the Tri-Sigma sorority. 
That meant access to their house 
was necessary. Little did they know 
what we were about to do while they 
were away I 

"Leeper" and 1 grabbed two 
pillowcases and walked the three 
blocks to the Tri-Sig house. Upon 
entry we stumbled in the dark, but 
did manage to "borrow" every last 

piece of imderwear we could find. 
Our mission accomplished, we felt 

Back at the Kappa Sigma 
Fraternity house we sifted through 
our find like a prospector having 
just foimd gold. Our bounty was 
not just limited to regular 
run-of-the-mill imderwear, but ones 
with zippers, lace, see-thru fabric 
and an assortment of wild colors. A 
couple of fraternity brothers joined 
us and we laughed hysterically while 
trying to match each piece with the 
girls who lived in the house. Later 
on, we separated the boring stuff 
from the juicy incriminating 
evidence, then returned to the bar. 
While discussing our treasure, we 
came up with the idea of tacking the 
good stuff arotmd the perimeter of 
the bar. After all, our fraternity had 
a scheduled mixer with Tri-Sigma 
the next weekend. What more 
perfect way to stretch a good prank? 

When Saturday finally arrived, 
"Leeper" and I sat in our room 
prior to the mixer and made 
predictions as to which piece of 
"evidence" belonged to which sister. 
After the girls arrived and settled in, 
they could be seen whispering softly 
among themselves, as they managed 
to put two and two together. It 
wasn't long before the sisters began 
to open up, but not until a couple 
of doses of "liquid courage" had 
been administered. Eventually, they 
came forward and claimed their 
personal items. 

As for our predictions — who 
would have ever guessed that the 
quietest, most reserved, and 
well-mannered girl in the sorority 
would wear hot pink, zippered, 
laced, see-thru panties. I guess the 
old saying, "You can't judge a book 
by its cover," certainly applied here.

Dreams are something most people 
save for a quiet moment away from 
whatever job they happened to have 
fallen into. 

David Brewin, Elon '69, fell into 
careers as a high school Spanish 
instructor, and then an elementary 
school guidance counselor. 

Deep down inside, however, 
Brewin maintained a fascination for 
forging metal. The dream of being a 
blacksmith had first taken root in 
him at 11 years of age, when his 
father took him to see the movie 
"Moby Dick." 

He vividly remembers the scene in 
which Captain Ahab. played by 
Gregory Peck, forged a harpoon to 
kill the great white whale and 
quenched it in blood he collected 
from his shipmates. 

"Boy, I just fell in love with 
that," Brewin said. "It struck a 
chord in me that just stayed in the 
back of my mind; I really loved 
forged metal work." 

Still, a man who graduates from 
college with a Spanish major ought 
to teach Spanish, and so Brewin 
returned to his native Eastern North 
Carolina to teach in an elementary 

Dissatisfaction caused Brewin to 
try another direction; this time a 
master's degree in counseling from 
East Carolina University which led 
to a job as an elementary school 
guidance counselor. 
But that didn't last long. 
"I remember the year I quit, I was 
bored one day watching kids take 
tests in the library when I looked 
down into the garbage can and saw 
this thing that said, 'Campbell (John 

C. Campbell Folk School in 
Brasstown, N.C.) offers 
blacksmithing courses,' " Brewin 

Brewin reached down and fished 
the piece of paper out of the trash 
— at whatever risk to his status 
among the test-takers. 

"When the testing was over I 
went right back to my office and 
called up the Folk School," Brewin 
said. "They had a course in 
blacksmithing coming up in the 

"I came out to the school and 
just fell in love with the place. The 
preservation of traditional crafts, 
the folk music and dances at night. 
The Folk School was one of the 
most amazing places I had ever 

Brewin's instructor for his second 
class at the school was the 
world-famous blacksmith Francis 
Whitaker from Aspen, Colorado. 
About halfway through the 
iwo-week class session, Whitaker 
called the class together to talk with 

"He said. 'I can sense that a lot 
of people are unhappy with their 
lives and their jobs,' " Brewin said. 
"Then he said, 'I'm not sure what 
to tell you about that. I can 
gratefully say that never happened 
10 me. I've been a blacksmith now 
for 40 some years and I've loved 
every day of it.' " 

That message, in hghi of the 
satisfaction he found in banging a 
hammer on metaJ in the beautiful 
Smokey Mountains, had a very 
powerful effect on Brewin. 

Brewin takes a rest to gaze Into the fire.

"I was convinced I had an ability — ^— ^^^— ^— 
to blacksmith," Brewin said. 

Within a year, Brewin quit his job 
at the school and started his own 
blacksmithing shop in his native 
Hertford, N.C. Soon a position 
became available at the Folk School, 
where Brewin has worked as the 
resident blacksmith for five years 

Brewin has been perfecting his 
skill from Whitaker and others in 
the trade. 

"Being a blacksmith is a life-long 
process," he said. "You keep 
learning all the time." 

When he's not learning or 
teaching, Brewin is creating fine, 
commissioned metalwork. He was 
recently asked to do all the 
hardware for the oldest brick home 
in North Carolina listed in the 
National Historical Register — the 
Newbowld-White House in 
Hertford, N.C. Blacksmithing is one 
of the few methods of production 
left in which a person can ask for 
something to be made the way he or 
she wants it. 

"You can't call up a factory and 
get a personal touch," Brewin said. 
"They make it the way they make 
ii, and if you don't like it — well 
that's lough." 

Brewin recalls how, as a child, he 
forged little harpoons on his parents 
patio grill using a tractor weight as 
an anvil. 

The summers he worked in his 
grandfather's shipyards on the 
coast, he remembered talking for 
hours to one of the ship's old 
blacksmiths, trying to get as much 
information from him as he could 
on the an. 

Now he works eight hours a day 
at the thing he dreamed of doing all 
those years. 

"I think everybody's got a 
purpose in life and [ hadn't found it 
leaching Spanish or counseling," 
Brewin said. "But when I'm 
blacksmithing, I really feel like I'm 
doing what I'm supposed to be

the plot THICKENS 


By Tim McDowell 

The lines on Jorn Winther's 
face were showing the strain 
of having been awake all 
night on the "red eye" flight from 
Los Angeles. His words were coarse 
in their heavy Swiss accent. 

"The Elon College campus is 
perfect," ihe executive producer of 
"Rituals", a new dramatic serial 
shown nationwide on television this 
fall, was telling Elon College 
President Fred Young in an early 
morning meeting. "It is just what 
we have been looking for." 

Thus began a long series of 
negotiations that would bring 
Hollywood to the peaceful setting of 
Elon College for a tumultuous 
10-day sprint which would excite, 
anger, motivate, frustrate and 
challenge the facilities of a college 
hardly prepared for the invasion. 

Exactly one week after the first 
telephone inquiry from the North 
Carolina Film Commission, a small 
army of technicians, hairdressers, 
cameramen, audio specialists, 
makeup artists, and cast members — 
including Joanne Fflug of the movie 
"M'A'S'H", Dennis Patrick of 
"Dallas", and Monte Markham of 
"The New Perry Mason" — were 
joking with students, faculty and 
administrators next to Alamance 

Winther was relieved. At least 
something was being filmed, after 
months of research, writing, selling, 
rewriting, and casting for a new 
show that many critics said would 
never see celluloid. Although the 
pilot program had been a success, 
"Rituals", with a theme similar to 
"Dallas" and "Dynasty", would be 
a 30-minuie, five-nights-a-week 
dramatic serial, something never 
attempted in commercial television. 

Now, after securing time slots on 
104 stations — a whopping 90 
percent of the television market — 
the director was shouting "Quiet on 
the set, please! Film speedl Go!" 

The absence of the word "action" 
was apparent only lo those of us 
unfamiliar with the Winther style. 

The previous week had been 
especially hard on Winther. Since 
the series revolved around a 
Southern girls' school, all efforts 
were concentrated on selecting a 
college campus. Other scenes would 
be filmed in the same area and 
would be located later. The cast and 
crew were scheduled lo arrive in less 
than a week to begin work, and a 
thousand details had to be worked 
through before they came. Several 
episodes needed to be completed 
before the series began, a date less 
than two months away. 

Two days into the negotiations, 
President Young said the college 
would not participate. Too many 
questions remained about the impact 
the series and the filming would 
have on the reputation of the 

Set designer Jack McAdam and 
location manager Kim Winther, son 

of the producer, flew from Los 
Angeles (hat same night and spent 
the next day agreeing to all of 
Young's objections. By Thursday, a 
new contract had been written. Only 
exterior shots would be allowed, and 
any signs identifying the Elon 
campus or buildings were to be 
changed. Scenes filmed on campus 
would not be used in any other 
productions, and "Rituals" had to 
comply with the prime time 
standards of the National 
Association of Broadcasters 
television code, which meant the 
program would be rated for general 
audiences if it were a motion 

In addition, Elon would have 
access to the scripts of scenes filmed 
on campus, and a credit for the 
college location would follow each 
program, if the college desired. The 
college was to be paid an 
undisclosed sum for use of the 

As part of the contract. I was to 
be the college representative who 
would stay with the production 
company during their visit and 
approve all campus filming. The 
production company. Telepictures 
Corp., was to reimburse the college 
for my salary while I was on loan to 
them. What I thought would be an 
exciting week turned into a 
laborious marathon of 16-hour days 
in the boiling sun with little time for 
anything but hard work. 

Following a hastily called news 
conference Friday to announce the 
campus site, the crew set up 
headquarters in the Ramada Inn and 
began the task of finding other 
locations. Especially elusive was a 
country mansion with siables and 
white columns, the type of 
plantation home the Chapin textile 
family — the central characters in 
the series would own. After showing 
Winther every mansion I knew in 
the area, a helicopter was borrowed 
from N.C. Governor Jim Hunt, and 
the crew covered the state visiting 
sites recommended by the North 
Carolina Film Commission. 

Finally, after three days of 
searching, a pilot volunteered «hat 
he knew a beautiful old home in 
southern Alamance County, and 
Winther knew after the first flyover 
he had found the site — the F.D. 
Hornaday Jr. home near Snow 
Camp. Contacted late Sunday, the 
gracious Hornadays agreed to open 
their home to the crew. 

A church across the road provided 
the graveyard scene although the 
"graves" had to be created (using 
Siyrofoam tombstones), and Glen 
Raven Mills, Inc. agreed to let one 
of their textile plants serve as the 
center of the Chapin family wealth. 
A Rolls Royce, Jaquar, Jeep, and 
other specialized cars were located 
and borrowed. 

By late Sunday night, the cast and 
crew had arrived in Burlington, and 
an 11 p.m. production meeting in 
the deserted lobby of the Ramada 
Inn brought the "Rituals" family 

Tim McDowell, center, director or community relations, served as college 
liaison with the film crew and served as an extra In several scenes.

assumed everyone would know each 
other, but that was not the case.

stairs, and lounging in the few 
chairs available — introduced 
themselves around the room. 
Winther had brought this group 
together, a mixture of Hollywood 
and New York, and their loyalty to 
the producer was evident from the 

The daily shooting schedule 
seemed commonplace to everyone 
but me. The cast would be in 
makeup and wardrobe at 7 a.m., 30 
minutes after the crew was on 
location setting up equipment. 
Lunch would be a 30-minute break 
sometime between 1 o'clock and 3 
p.m., and filming often continued 
until well after dark. Dinner was

show to be filmed on location and 
70 percent shot at Telepictures' 
Hollywood soundsiage. The cast and 
crew will return to the Elon College 
campus this fall and again next 
spring, if the show's ratings remain 

high. With the college now in full 
enrollment, more students will get 
an opportunity to see a television 
production company at work, and 
more than a few will dream of being 
"discovered" by Hollywood.

early if before U p.m., and a 
midnight production meeting would 
decide the next day's schedule. 
There was little time for play. 

Even though the temperatures 
hovered in the upper 90s, and the 
crew had to dress in sweaters and 
jackets because of the fall showing, 
1 never heard a complaint. Once, 
when a sudden shower halted 
filming, the crew raced to cover the 
cameras and equipment, then 
enjoyed a basketball game in the 
pouring rain. Other than a dressing 
room game of Trivial Pursuit, it was 
the only recreation 1 witnessed. 

The cast and crew seemed truly 
appreciative of the hospitality they 
received on the Elon campus. When 
not involved in a scene, they were 

glad to sit for interviews with the 
local press, and most of the stars 
taped segments for an Elon College 
television program. The conference 
room in Powell Building became a 
makeup room, and the college made 
Wilkins Lounge available for the 
cast to rest. It became a popular 
place for Pflug, Markham, Patrick 
and the other actors to find some 
peace and enjoy a sandwich. 

The actor creating perhaps the 
most excitement on campus was not 
involved in "Rituals'". Mark 
LaMura, who plays Mark Dalton on 
ABC's "All My Children," is 
engaged to Andrea Moar, who plays 
a Chapin sibling in "Rituals". With 
"All My Children" on break 
because of ABC's Olympic 
coverage, LaMura — an old friend 
of Winther from the producer's 
"All My Children" days — stayed 
with the crew throughout their visit. 
With Moar moving to the West 
Coast set of "Rituals", it was the 
last opportunity the couple had 
together before LaMura returned to 
the ABC studios in New York. 

College students comprise a large 
part of the daytime serial audience, 
and LaMura was recognized 
wherever he went. He graciously 
gave autographs and posed for 
photographs while trying to learn 
from Winther the production end of 

On one occasion, LaMura and I 
were dispatched to a country store 
10 get soft drinks for the crew, 
which was filming scenes at the 
country mansion. Always ready to 
joke, the actor persuaded a Coke 
truck driver making a delivery at the 
store to drive the huge truck onto 
the set to distribute free Cokes. It 
obviously distrupted filming. "You 
said you wanted a Coke," LaMura 
shrugged to the producer, whose 
rage quickly turned to laughter.

The faces of philanthropy 



I will be using the Elon 
College Fine Arts Center 
three or four times a week," 
says businessman David E. 
Pardue, who heads a nationwide 
estate investment group 
headquartered in Burlington, N.C. 

Pardue is a tuba player who 
regularly dashes over to the college 
to practice with the band and to 
play in the Community Orchestra 
and the Brass Quintet. Each year he 
plays in five or six orchestra 
concerts, at least two programs by 
the Brass Quintet, and eight or ten 
other recitals or concerts for 
churches or community groups. 

A $2 million fund-raising 
campaign is currently being 
conducted for Phase I of the fine 
arts center, and Pardue voices keen 
enthusiasm for the multi-faceted 
building. He has also made a 
substantial contribution to the 
building fund. 

"I am proud of what the center 
will do for the community and area, 
but mainly I'm interested in what it 
will do for the college," Pardue 
says. "This facility with its recital 
halls, practice rooms, studios, and 
lecture rooms will mean that the 
college can attract more good, 
serious music students. They will 
benefii the whole music program. A 
stronger fine arts program will 
further strengthen the college. It will 
set a positive tone." 

Pardue began playing in the band 

in the fifth grade. By the time he 
entered Williams High in 
Burlington, he was serious about 
trumpet and tuba, but the tuba won 
out as his primary instrimient. He 
played in all-state bands, and as a 
senior in 1964 he was chosen for the 
High School Band of America which 
played at the New York World's 
Fair and toured Canada for 22 

"I went to the University of 
North Carolina for a degree in 
business administration, and I 
dropped out of music. 1 now think 
that was pretty stupid," he admits. 
"About four years ago I bought a 
new horn and started playing again. 
I went out to Elon College and took 
lessons with Joe Belk, the brass 
instructor from Hickory, and got 
back into playing." 

"I am very busy with business 
and raising two childfen, but I find 
playing in the orchestra and the 
quintet challenging and satisfying," 
Pardue says. "Malvin Artley is a 
demanding conductor. We work 
hard. Then we have a great sense of 
accomplishment, of working 
together to produce a good 

Pardue says that the jazz group, 
the Emanons, does a great job of 
recruiting for music and the whole 
college. "To combine that kind of 
recruiting with this new facility will 
improve the quality of music and of 
the school," he believes. 

Music is not Pardue's only 
interest in the arts, although it is

obviously his choice for 
participation. His contemporary 
home with its solarium, skylights, 
and inviting reception areas shows 
off a collection of modem paintings 
to advantage. A commissioned 
sculpture of a ballet dancer 
symbolizes his own and his daughter 
Courtney's interest in ballet. Pardue 
included in his new home a room 
with a special resilient floor for 
dance practice and performance. 

Given the open architectural style 
of his home and the forte tones of 
the tuba, he has chosen for his 
practice a room that can be closed 
off — the master bathroom! 

David Pardue is one of many 
friends of the college and alumni 
who see the fine arts — music, 
drama, the dance, painting, 
printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, 
and the history of these arts — as a 
necessary ingredient of education. 
These friends and alumni are 
helping to make a dream come true. 
When completed, the planned Fine 
Arts Center will bring together the 
leaching, practice, performing, and 
library facilities that now are 
scattered around the campus in 
classrooms, studios, and an 
auditorium constructed years ago 
when student numbers totaled fewer 
than 400. 

Today's enrollment of more than 
2,700 means that major productions 
must be performed in the gym. 
What is great for basketball is a 
poor makeshift for opera, 
symphony, chorus or band. Plays 
must take to the boards in Whitley 
Auditorium or upstairs Mooney. 
The college has no place for an 
exhibition of student paintings, 
prints, or ceramics except for the 
classroom or temporary space in the 
library. The Priestley Collection of 
oil paintings, watercolors, and 
original prints given to the college 
now hangs in administration 
corridors, entrance halts and public 
offices. A well lighted, 
temperature-controlled and secure 
gallery will offer all students and the 
community a place to enjoy 
permanent and rotating art 

One alumna who believes in 
strengthening the fine arts as 
an integral part of the hberal 
education offered at Elon is 
_ Isabella Walton Cannon, B.A. *24, 
P first and only woman mayor 
^ of Raleigh (the capital city of 
J' North Carolina), perpetual 
>. volunteer and inexhaustible worker 

for good causes and organizations.

later travels have taken her to 
Mexico, South America, Nova 
Scotia, Scandinavia and the USSR, 
and back to Scotland many times. 
She is giving her collection of fine 
scrolls, screens, and other works of 
art to the North Carolina Museum 
of Art. 

With David Pardue and 
Isabella Cannon, another 
enthusiastic supporter of the 
fine arts at Elon College is Alyse 
Smith Cooper of Burlington, 
leader in musical circles 
of the Piedmont and the state. Mrs. 
Cooper serves as chairman of the 
Elon College Presidential Board of 
Advisers, and in this office 
brings a Ufetime of experience 
to discussions on the arts. For many 
years she has also served on the 
Board of Trustees of Duke 

Alyse Smith attended Randolph 
Macon College, but appendicitis 
interrupted her sophomore year and 
she returned home to Burlington. 
The rest of the semester she studied 
piano with C. J". Velie at Elon 
College. Then she went to Duke and 
completed an A.B. in English. 
During this time, her love of music 
brought her to the Elon campus for 
piano, voice, organ, and harmony.

"I wanted to make a contribution 
to Elon College, and when I learned 
of the multi-purpose area for the art 
gallery, the Elon College board 
meetings, and for various 
receptions, I wanted to help on that," 
she says. "1 felt this was a place 
where different interests and cross 
disciplines could come together." 

Mrs. Cannon serves on the Board 
of Directors for the Humanities 
Foundation at North Carolina State 
University, where she strives to keep 
the humanities as an integral part of 
technical and professional 
education. She says that "history, 
political science, English, languages, 
and the arts are not adjuncts to 
education; they should be part of 
every educated person's experience, 
continuing through life." 

Her own interest in speech and 
drama began in Winecoff High in 
Kannapolis, North Carolina, and 
continued at Elon College. Debating 
gave her added interest in politics 
and social issues. Drama carried 
over to her hfe in Raleigh where she 
was on the board which decided to 
build the Raleigh Little Theatre. She 
played in the first production and in 
16 other plays, one at the Chapel 
Hill Drama Festival. 

A sense of the dramatic adds 
color to her speeches and writings. 
Her biographical notes tell of the 
robbery of the Elon Banking and 
Trust Company when she, the 
cashier, was locked in the vault. 
Fortunately, she was soon able to 
free herself and the robbers were 
caught and convicted. One of her

honorary black belt in karate,

demonstration. And surely her best 
piece of living drama was

While mayor, Mrs. Cannon 
started a rotating an exhibit for her 
office. She wanted to give emerging 
and lesser known artists the 
opportunity to show their works. 
The rotating exhibition was the basis 
for fine arts displays in Raleigh's 
new Municipal Building. 

Her novel campaign was grist for 
the media. Major national 
magazines and all national 
newspapers ran articles as she ran in

networks featured her. Reuters (a

a luok at history in the college archives 

story by Chris Quad 

Years ago, every house had an aiiic 
which was usually stuffed to 
overflowing. Most of us can 
remember poking around at some 
time or another in that wonderful 
haven filled with old clothes, trunks, 
books, photographs, odd pieces of 
furniture, dishes, and boxes loaded 
with curious knick-knacks. The attic 
was usually a catch-all room and the 
heart of the house, a silent guardian 
of memories. 

Elon College also has an "attic," 
in the basement of the McEwen 
Library. The Elon College archives 
are located there, along with an odd 
assortment of miscellany thai has 
accumulated over the years. 

Dr. Durward T. Stokes, Elon 
College historian, is the unofficial 
authority on the Elon archives. 
Almost hidden behind stacks of 
papers, filing cabinets, and banners, 
is Stokes' desk, also covered with 
various articles. 

"When anyone from the College 
finds something they don't know 
what to do with, they put it on this 
desk," said Stokes. "I come over 
here periodically to look through 
things, but everything is just thrown 
in here. It should all be organized 
and catalogued," he said. 

Indeed, just about every available 
space is filled with everything from 
a painting of a nude to a glass 
jar filled with ashes. Metal shelves 
line the walls, stacked with old 
annuals, catalogues, periodicals, 
books, photographs, and letters. 

"The only thing down here in the 
way of organization is a metal 
fire-proof filing cabinet," said 
Stokes. "It was expensive, took a 
long time lo get, and contains 22 
items, mostly important documents 
I've put in there that are 
irreplaceable," he said. 

Among these items are records of 
faculty proceedings from 1893-1924, 
a registration book dated 1890-1902, 
a book of student records 
reconstructed from the 1923 fire at 
Elon, and catalogues from 

In one corner of the small room is 
a box marked 'crystal chandelier' put 
there, according to Stokes, because 
the College had no appropriate place 
for it. Another box is labeled 
"beveled gold leaf mirror," also 
there for lack of a better location. 

On the floor, a box marked 'old 
pictures' contains old photographic 
dry plates (plate glass negatives), 
and old pictures, including one 
dated 1875 of the Rev. W.S. Long, 
W.W. Staley, and J.W. Wellons. 

On another shelf is a copy of the 
Bur)lDg(oD Dally Times-News, with 
the headline "Dr. Danieley Installed 
as President of Elon College." This 
was written when the Elon student 
body numbered 1,469, and a copy 
of the Times-News was five cents. 

"Guy R. Lambert, a librarian at 
Elon, set out to organize this room 
while he was here," said Stokes. 
"He straightened it up some, but 
died suddenly and no one has

"Before he came down and 
started putting things in stacks, you 
couldn't even get in the door," 

added Stokes. "What he did manage 
to accomplish in the short period of 
time he worked down here was a 
tremendous improvement," he said.

Garden predicts 
successful year 

on gridiron 

Elon College is well underway with 
its 1984 football season and the 
season is looking to be a big success, 
due in large part to a strong nucleus 
returning on defense and a good 
recruiting year. 

Head coach Macky Carden begins 
his first year at the helm and he is 
optimistic when talking about his 
team's chances. "We will be strong 
on defense," says Carden. "Royce 
Fentress is going to be one of the 

premiere players in the conference 
and district this year. He just is an 
outstanding athlete as well as an 
outstanding individual. 

"The offense should develop into 
a first-rate unit. Sam Fromhart has 
looked very confident in early 
season scrimmages. I think the 
whole team will do well once we get 
into the season." 

The defense is anchored by 
All-America candidate Royce 
Fentress, who is joined by an all-star 
cast. On the defensive line is Lewin 
Bullock, Grady Williams, and Ken 
Tatko. Bob LeBlanc and Tony 
Settles are at the defensive ends. 
Russell Evans and Jack Arnold are 
also capable at linebacker. The 
secondary is headed by Al 
Hendricks, Kenny Angel, Jake 
Welbourn, and Jeff Knox. 

On offense, Fromhart is under 
center. Also in the backfield, Jonas 
Davis is at tailback and Terry 
Patterson is looking good at 
fullback. The offensive line is 
headed by a strong group that is still 
not sure of its starters for the entire 
season. The coaching staff feels 
confident, however, that whoever is 
on the field will do a very capable 

The receiving corps will be headed 
by Jay Simmons. Stanly Hairston 
and Chuck Ward are also 
promising. Jeff Lazenby is 
speed-demon on the outside 

Clay Hassard, Bullock, Angel, 
and Fentress are the captains on this 
year's squad, with Fentress serving 
as the head captain. Hassard was an 
All-District 26 performer last year as 
a guard. This year he will be moved 
to tackle but is expected to reap 
such laurels again. Fentress and 
Angel also garnered the same 
honors. Grady Williams was on the 
second team. 

Fentress was the only performer 
to return to Elon from the 
AlI-SAC-8 team. Williams, Hassard, 
Fromhart, and Kilcrease were on the 
second team. 

"We're hoping to take the 
conference title this year. We feel we 
have the team to do it," Carden 
says. "We have a tough schedule 
since we open up so late but that's 
just part of the game. We will be 
okay. If our kicking game comes 
around and the offensive line gives 
us the protection we need, and we 
can stay away from injuries, 
I hope we will be in the picture." 

Soccer team 
set sights for 
play-offs again 

The 1984 soccer team has already 
begun its season and despite a losing 
performance in its opener against 
Averett, the Fightin' Christians are 
showing definite signs of promise. 
The Christians lost 2-1 in overtime 
but rebounded with a strong 7-1 win 
over Mars Hill. Elon has also 
already faced defending NCAA 
Division 111 national champion 
UNC-Greensboro, losing in 

This year's team will have a new 
look, even without the new transfers 
and freshmen. The Bakaisias Field 
was dedicated before the Averett 
game. The funds for the field were 
part of a generous donation by the 
Bakatsias brothers and family. 

George Bakatsias spoke in behalf of 
the family at the dedication 
ceremonies which included President 
Dr. Fred Young and Athletic 
Director Dr. Alan White. Head 
coach Steve Ballard also spoke on 
behalf of the soccer team to show 
their appreciation. 

Elon is led by senior captains Joe 
Bartlinski and Andy Schaefer. Also 
back from last year's 12-5-2 team is 
senior forward Paul Lawson. 
Lawson led the team in goals scored 
last year. Sean Flanagan and 
Anthony Sherwood are other seniors 
on the team who will contribute to 
Elon's success. 

"We started slowly but it was 
against some strong competition," 
Ballard said recently. "We will be 
okay. We have played with two fine 
teams already and we showed we 
can play with anybody. We expect 
to return lo the district playoffs 

As Lawson said in a television 
interview, "We want all wins. We 
should be able to compete at all 
levels. We have the team to do it." 

volleyball team 
full of talent 

The volleyball team of head coach 
Karen Carden has already kicked off 
its season and the coach feels her 
1984 edition could be strong and full 
of talent. "We have a strong 
nucleus returning and with the 
strength of our incoming freshmen, 
we should do well in the conference 
race," Carden said. 

The spikers will be led by senior 
Susan Overby. Overby is a setter 
from Durham, N.C. Last season, 
she garnered All -Conference and 
All-District 26 honors. Joining 
Overby as a captain on this year's 
squad is senior Alicia Gaddy. Gaddy 
is a hitter and plays a lot taller than 
her listed 5-5 height. "Alicia is one 
of the strongest hitters around," 
Carden commented. "We'll rely on 
her to do a lot of the hitting." 

Faith Pitts returns for another 
year in the Elon program. Pitts 
comes out of Winston-Salem 
Parkland High, as does Gaddy. 
"She has shown lots of 
improvement each year and will be 
counted on with her 6-0 height. She 
is excellent on defense." 

Also coming back from last year's 
15-17 team is junior Doreen 
Williams, sophomore Katanja 
Clapp, sophomore Kim Punches, 
and junior Leiia Gentry. 

The incoming freshmen crop is 
loaded with talent. The list is headed 
by highly touted Beth Mattox from 
Alta Vista, VA. Angle McRae will 
give Elon three players who played 
prep ball at Parkland High in 
Winston-Salem. Also coming in are 
Pam Cason and Dianne Schronce. 

Christians win 
opener against 
top-ranked C-N 

The Fighting Christians football 
team, defeated top-ranked 
Carson-Newman 31-39 in their 

season opener, and first game 
under head coach Macky Carden, a 
1965 Elon graduate. The Christians 
were ranked 8th going into the 
game, but have since advanced to 
ntjmber three. Linebacker and 
team captain Royce Fentress was 
voted top defensive player of the 
week in the NAIA nationwide as a 
result of his performance in the

Mrs. Cooper recalls the "old 
days" of the Civic Music Concert 
Series when Burlington and Elon 
College cooperated in exciting 
programs that drew 
standing-room-only audiences in 
Whitley Auditorium. 

"Elon College contributed $800 a 
year, made Whitley available, tuned 
the grand pianos before recitals, and 
helped us sell tickets, I remember 
audiences of 1200, sittmg on the 
church benches we had then, on 
chairs, standing at the windows and 
crowding the outside," Mrs. Cooper 
says. "We had symphonies, singers 
like Jerome Mines, and every year 
The Messiah. The Elon chorus sang 
at churches and community affairs 
throughout the year." 

Today is different, she savs 
because there are many distractions. 
Television fills the need for music 
and drama for many people. 
Students have cars and leave for 
Greensboro, Raleigh, or Chapel 
Hill. She hopes that the proposed 
Fine Arts Center will become the 
focal place that will bring renewed 
interest in live programs for alive 
and excited audiences. 

All three of these patrons of the 
arts believe that adequate facilities 
can attract visiting artists in many 
fields, and the recitals, concerts, 
dance performances and art 
exhibitions will help students and 
visitors to become more 
discriminating in their choices of 
programs, more conscious of the 
classics and of contemporary trends. 
Experimental plays, music and art 
can be tried and evaluated. Theaters 
and recital halls, with good acoustics 
and seating arrangements, will foster 
further development of poetry and 
short story readings, forums and 
seminars in the arts. 

This exciting Fine Arts Center is 
becoming a reality as alumni, 
faculty, and friends in business and 
the professions give time, thought, 
and funds to build this center that 
will change the lives of all who open 
its doors.

Learning by writing 

Elon leads the way with writing 
across the curriculum 

By Nan Perkins 

The students in Dr. Whitney 
Vanderwerffs English III class look 
like typical college freshmen, but the 
course itself is far from average. For 
one thing, the students write their 
themes on such topics as 
recombinant DNA, genetic 
engineering, and the toxic effects of 
environmental pollutants. In the 
library they do their research in 
journals like Science and American 
Naturalist. And in class, they spend 
more time talking with each other 
about their writing projects than 
ihey do with Dr. Vanderwerff. 

What's going on? Writing across 
the curriculum, a new teaching 
concept that encourages the use of 
writing as a way of learning in all 
disciplines. The writing across the 
curriculum movement has swept 
across the United States. Canada 
and Britain in recent years, and 
proponents hail it as the most 
promising avenue to producing 
better student thinkers and therefore 
better writers. Institutions as 
different as Yale, the University of 
Texas, Michigan Technological 
University and many small colleges 
have adopted college-wide writing 
across the curriculum programs. 
Elon is the first college in the area 
to adopt the program on a large 

The students in Dr. Vanderwerffs 
English III class at Elon are in a 
writing across the curriculum 
experiment, a paired English-biology 
section. All of them are also in a 

section of Biology III taught by Dr. 
Nancy Harris. The two professors 
work together to plan writing 
assignments based on the 
experiments and subjects being 
covered in the biology class. 
Through the assignments the 
students deepen their understanding 
of the biology material and work on 
improving their writing skills as 

The course is just one of many 
experiments currently being 
conducted at Elon as part of a 
three-year writing across the 
curriculum program imder the 
direction of Dr. Vanderwerff, 
assistant professor of English and 
director of composition. Dr. 
Vanderwerff first became interested 
in the writing across the curriculimi 
movement three years ago and has 
attended a number of national 
conferences and workshops on the 

The Elon program was laimched 
by a two-day faculty workshop in 
August conducted by national 
writing consultant Elaine Maimon, 
associate vice president and 
professor of English at Beaver 
College. Glenside, Pa., and a 
leading proponent of the national 
writing across the curriculum 
movement. Attending the workshop 
were 33 faculty members 
representing the humanities, 
mathematics, science, physical 
education, business and the ROTC. 

During the workshop the faculty 
learned new teaching techniques and 
were given dozens of suggestions of

Rogers, left and Brad Laokford, who are revising a chapter of their biology 
lab manual, a collaborative writing project typifying writing across the 
corriculum procedures. 

short-term writing assignments 
designed to encourage speculative 
and analytical thinking and to teach 
writing as a process. Maimon also 
shattered a few idols. 

"The instructor has no 
responsibility to correct every error 
on a student's paper," she asserted. 
"Forget about circling the P's and 
Q's and get used to asking, as a 
matter of course, for students to 
look at what they're doing and 

Forget about grading everything 
too, Maimon advised. "In the past 
we have regarded every piece of 
student writing as a performance to 
be judged. Students should write 
more; we should grade less." 

Methods such as these are basics 
in the writing across the curriculum 
movement, which emphasizes 
writing as a means of learning. The 
idea is to teach students social 
studies by having them write about 
social studies, to teach them science 
by having them write about science 
and in the process to teach them to 
write without focusing on the 
teaching and writing. 

Writing as a process is another 
notion basic to the concept. The 
traditional method of making an 
assignment, collecting the papers on 
the day they are due and then 
marking and grading them 
emphasizes writing as a product. 
The professor focuses on the 
product and what is wrong with it. 
rather than on how the student 
arrived at that product. Writing 
across the curriculum teaches writing 
as a process which includes such 
steps as exploring a topic, 
identifying a problem or issue, 
collecting and organizing data, 
formulating arguments or solutions, 
writing a rough draft, and revising, 
revising, revising. 

Collaborative learning methods 
enforce the concept of writing as a 
process. Vanderwerff uses variations 
of peer review, a collaborative 

learning technique, at various points 
during the completion of a writing 
assignment. A typical peer review 
session might work like this: 
Students divide into pairs. Without 
looking at his rough draft, one 
student explains to the other the 
thesis of his paper, his main 
arguments, and which sources of 
research have been most helpful. 
The listener then repeats what he 
has heard and asks questions if 
necessary. Then, knowing what the 
writer is trying to say. the listener 
reads the rough draft and comments 
on the writer's success in conveying 
his argument. After discussion of 
strengths and needed improvements, 
the process is reversed. The students 
then use the insights they have 
gained in writing a final draft. 

Frequent, short, ungraded writing 
assignments are the rule in a class 
which is involved in writing across 
the curriculum. Professors use 
writing assignments to encourage 
students to think and question, to 
generate discussion, to ensure 
understanding, and to teach thinking 
skills like analogy, inference and 
deduction. Typical assignments 
include brief summaries of assigned 
reading at the beginning of class; 
writing two or three questions about 
the class at the end of a period 
comparing two different sources on 
a critical point in the subject; a 
sentence-by-sentence rewriting of a 
difficult paragraph; writing 
inferences from a list of headlines; 
and writing one paragraph using all 
of the terms employed in a scientific 

Daily journals and writing 
portfolios are other typical 
requirements. "I'm keeping a 
portfolio in three different classes," 
complained one student. "I'm doing 
so much writing I can hardly lug it 
all around." 

The program is demanding on

Board seeks ways 
to build entire 
fine arts center 

Presideni Fred Young told the 
Eion College Board of Trustees ai 
iheir annual fall meeting that it 
may be possible to raise the $6.5 
million needed to build both phases 
of the proposed fine arts center. 
The board in turn authorized 
archiiecis to complete working 
drawings for Phase II of the 

■ center, which includes art 
classrooms and an auditorium. 
Drawings are already completed 

, for Phase 1, the music wing. 
The president's report to the 
Board followed a report from Dr. 
James B. Powell, general chairman 
of the PRIDE II campaign, that 
over $300,000 had been received or 
pledged toward meeting the Kresge 

Young told the trustees that if 
the Kresge Challenge can be met, 
the college will have the $2.5 
million necessary lo build Phase I 
of the center. A financial 
procedure known as sale-leaseback 
could yield another S2.5 million, he 
said, leaving $1.5 million which 
would have to come from one or 

- more large gifts. 

The architects' drawings for 
Phase II of the center will not be 
completed before June, 1985. The 
board will review the status of the 
fund-raising efforts at the March, 
1985 meeting and decide what 
course to pursue. It is possible, 
said Young, thai construction 
could begin next year. 

In other matters, the board 
heard a report from the president 
on the proposed legislative strategy 
for securing increased state support 
for North Carolina students 
attending the state's private 
colleges. "In light of the tuition 
gap, the declining number of high 
school graduates and the expansion 
of the state system, increased state 
support is the most crucial issue 
facing Elon and other private 
colleges today," Young told the 
trustees, who will be participating 
in the legislative efforts. 

Naomi A. Garber 
funds memorial 

A Washington. D.C. woman has 
established a $25,000 scholarship at 
Elon College honoring her late 

Mrs. Naomi Allen Garber has 
endowed the Simeon Lee Allen 
Scholarship Fund. The endowment 

December, 1984 

fund will provide annual financial 
aid for students, preferably from the 
Elon Home for Children. 

Mr. Allen was a graduate of Elon 
College. Mrs. Allen lives in the Elon 
community, and their son, Noel 
Allen, a Raleigh attorney, is an Elon 
College alumnus. He is currently 
serving as first vice president of the 
Elon College Alumni Association. 

"This memorial gift honoring the 
life of Mr. Allen will provide 
assistance to Elon College students 
for years to come," said Dr. Jo 
Watts Williams, vice president for 

Maness scholarship 
funded at Elon 

The W.L. and Beulah Maness 
Scholarship Fund has been 
established at Elon College to 
provide assistance for worthy and 
needy students pursuing a career in 
Christian service. The scholarship is 
in honor of the Rev. W.L. Maness, 
and in memory of Beulah McNeill 

W.L. Maness. 94, is a 1918 
graduate of Elon College. He 
decided to pursue a career in the 
ministry, and served in this capacity 
for 41 years before his retirement in 
1956. He served several churches 
after his retirement and is currently 
the oldest living minister in the 
North Carolina Conference. 

Both Maness and the late Beulah ) 
McNeill Maness are natives of 
Moore County. Two of their five 
children were born during the time 
they were at Elon College, and since 
then two sons and a daughter have 
attended Elon. 

"My mother and all her family 
were members of the United Church 
of Christ, which is affiliated with 
Elon College," said eldest son Dr. 
Paul F. Maness of Burlington. 
"Dad had gotten so many benefits 
from Elon College and the United 
Church of Christ, that he felt it was 
appropriate to set up a scholarship 
for future Elon students-" 


Rev. W.L. Maness 

The Josh Brooks' 
legacy: help 
for other families 

Tiny Josh Brooks' struggle for life 
caught the attention of millions last 
year, and the help — emotional 
and financial — came pouring in. 
Now his parents, June Clark 
Brooks '77 and Ricky Brooks '76 
of Laurinburg, N.C., have formed 
the Josh Brooks Living Memorial 
Transplant Association to support 
other families faced with similar 

The association's purpose is lo 
educate the public about the need 
for organ donors, to try to 
establish a national system for 

matching donors and recipients, 
and, most of all, to help families 
with children in need of 

The donations the Brooks 
received which were not needed to 
pay for Josh's transplant were 
transferred to the association, and 
several fund-raising activities have 
been held as well. 

The association thus far has 
given assistance to 30 families, 10 
of them from North Carolina. The 
help has included emotional 
support and funds to pay 
transportation, lodging and meals 
for families who must travel great 
distances to hospitals. 

Anyone interested in information 
about transplants or organ 
donations should write June at 
P.O. Box 2018, Laurinburg, N.C.

Barbara Day Bass '61 wins 
presidential award for teaching 

"I have no illusion thai i am the 
best, but I am proud to have been 
selected lo represent the best." 
Barbara Day Bass, winner of a 1984 
presidential award for excellence in 
teaching mathematics, said recently. 

A 1961 graduate of Elon College, 
Mrs. Bass teaches mathematics and 
computer science at St. Catherine's 
School in Richmond, Va. She is one 
of 104 science and mathematics 
teachers representing every state, the 
District of Columbia and Puerto 
Rico who were selected to receive 
the 1984 Presidential Awards for 
Excellence in Science and 
Mathematics Teaching. The award 
carries with it a $5000 grant from 
the National Science Foundation to 
be used to supplement or increase 
the program of each teacher's 

Mrs. Bass was nominated last year 
for the coveted award and this year 
received it. Along with the other 
recipients she traveled lo Washington 
in October to pick up the award and 
attend a five-day series of 
workshops, seminars, receptions and 
banquets. The awards were 
presented at the While House and 
the teachers had a chance to talk 
with the president. 

"It was a wonderful, stimulating 
experience," she says of the week. 
"It is gratifying to know that 
teachers are being recognized for 
what they are contributing. The 
whole week's events seem to say 
'you are important, what you're 
doing is important both for our 
country and the people.' Teachers 
work hard, and they need to hear 

Mrs. Bass plans to use a portion 
of the grant which St. Catherine's 
will receive to buy a 
spectrophotometer for the school's 
science department. Some of the 
money may also be used to bring 
women who have achieved 
prominence in their fields to speak 
at St. Catherine's, a girls' school. In 
addition, she estimates she will be 
donating to the school at least 
another $5000 worth of gifts which 
she is receiving from the public 
sector as a result of the award. She 
has already received a computer, a 
modem, several software programs, 
a set of encyclopedias and a number 
of books. 

Mrs. Bass joined St. Catherine's 
faculty in 1970 and has been 
chairman of the math department 
for about 11 years. In addition she 

Barbara Bass leacbes mathematics at St. Catberioe's School in Ricbmoad, Va. 

serves as coordinator of the 
computer program. 

After graduating from Elon in 
three years, she went straight into 
teaching. ("It was the only thing 
they were interviewing women for 
then.") She has taught at three 
other Virginia high schools during 
her 25-year teaching career and has 
earned a master's degree in math 
education from the University of 

Mrs. Bass's husband, Walter, is 
also an Elon alumnus, and the two 
have been generous in their 
contributions to the school. They 
have funded the Walter H. and 
Barbara Day Bass Scholarship Fund 

which is awarded annually to 
students who have financial need 
and a record of high academic 
achievement. They have also pledged 
$100,000 lo the school through the 
Elon Life for Endowment program. 

"Waller and 1 both received 
scholarships and loans while we 
were at Elon," she says. "If it 
hadn't been for the people who 
endowed those funds, we wouldn't 
have been able to attend. We try not 
to forget that." 

"Besides," she adds, stating her 
admirable philosophy, "what you 
keep you lose. Only what you give 
away remains your own." 

Two Elon alumni 
serve on six-man 
national committee 

When John Sparks '50 was 
appomted to serve on the Insurance 
Trust Committee of the American 
Institute of Certified Public 
Accountants, he discovered that he 
was the second Elon College 
alumnus on the prestigious six-man 
national committee. 

The committee members are 
selected from among the more than 
215,000 members of the nationwide 
organization. They supervise the 
largest insurance trust in the world 
— $18 billion worth of insurance 
covering over 150,000 persons. 

George C. Taylor '36 is the other 
Elon alumnus on the committee. 
Taylor was comptroller of the 
American Institute for 16 years from 
1963 until 1979 when he retired. He 
has been an appointee to the Trust 
Committee for the past three years. 

Taylor was captain of the tennis 

John Sparks 'SO 

team at Elon, a member of Kappa 
Psi Nu, and the college's first 
Rhodes scholar nominee. Since he 
retired, he and his wife make their 
home in Columbia, Tenn. They are 
ihe parents of one daughter. 

Sparks is a CPA in Greensboro, 
N.C., where he has operated his 
own accounting firm for 25 years. 
He also served as chairman of the 
Board of Trustees of the North 
Carolina Association of Certified 

George C. Taylor '36 

Public Accountants. 

He is married, has one child and 
two grandchildren, and enjoys the 
reputation of being an authority on 
old motion pictures. 

Both Sparks and Taylor are 
looking forward lo meeting each 
other and exchanging Elon stories 
when the commiite next meets in 
New York City.

Hall's new book 
tells how to get 
on the right track 

Even if I knew where I wanted to 
go, could I get there from here? 

Dr, Lacy G. Hall '58 says "Yes!" 
In his new book. Switch Track, Hall 
says you can learn how to "throw 
switches" (make choices) that will 
lake your life in the direction you 
want it to go. The secret lies in 
making life choices that will put you 
on the right track. 

Hall has developed a four-level 
model of choice-making styles: 
dependence on others, dependence 
of the facts, value/need fulfillment, 
and shaping your life with 
self-direction. "It's not one extra 
biscuit that makes you gain weight, 
it's your style of eating. Your style 
of making choices affects the choice 
you make," says Hall. 

Hall is professor of psychology at 
Winston-Salem State University and 
author of the acclaimed Hall 

Coot, on page 5

Douglas H. Cox '78 

Alums work right and left in 
recent Senate campaign 

Douglas H. Cox has a map of North 
Carolina on which he traced with a 
magic marker every highway he 
traveled during his year and three 
months with the Jim Hunt for 
Senate campaign. The map is 
practicaJly solid black. 

Since August. 1983, Cox, a 1978 
graduate of Elon, has been state 
director of the small contributors 
fund-raising program for the Hunt 
campaign. Small contributors give 
$25 or less, but make up 75^o of all 
donors. The Hunt campaign relied 
chiefly on volunteer canvassing for 
small contributions, and Cox 
criss-crossed the state many times 
helping county leaders organize 
solicitation efforts. Approximately 
one-half million dollars was raised. 

In addition to his degree from 
Elon, Cox holds a degree in political 
science from East Carolina 
University and is working on a 
master's degree in political science 
and public administration from 
N.C. State University. His goal is a 
career in politics. In January, 1983 
he began working with the North 
Carolina Campaign Fund, a 
fund-raising effort for 
Democratic candidates. When that 
organization became non functional 
in the summer of 1983, Cox 
switched lo the Hunt campaign. 
From then until the election he has 
worked 15-16 hours a day, weekdays 
and weekends — by choice. 

He loved it. "Nothing is more 
exciting than sitting across from the 
governor in an airplane. I got to 
know him well and he is a super, 
personable human being. Ii was a 
great year." 

Naturally Cox is disappointed 
with the outcome of the election. He 
will spend several more weeks 
wrapping up the campaign, writing 
thank-you letters to the hundreds of 
people he met during his travels, 

December, 1984 

and closing down the office. After 
that he plans to finish his degree. 

"I feel a little like the retiring 
Miss America, I suppose," he 
reflects. "It's been a great year, but 
now you have to turn it over to 
someone else." 

Undoubtedly, politics has not 
heard the last of Doug Cox. 


On election night, Allen Page should 
have been celebrating. After all his 
candidate for the U.S. Senate from 
North Carolina, Jesse Helms, was 
winning. But instead. Page found 
himself stuck on the phone until 
nearly 3:00 a.m. trying to monitor 
the vote count situation in several 
counties where the voting machines 
had broken down. 

The celebration came later, 
however, and it was well-earned. 
Since May, 1983, Page had worked 
diligently for the Helms campaign, 
first with special events and then as 
a field representative responsible for 
setting up campaign organizations in 
17 counties. In the process he 
traveled over 105,000 miles and went 
through three cars. Near the end of 
the campaign, he was working 15 
hour days, six days a week. 

You hear no complaints from 
Page, however. A native of Elon 
College, he has been interested in 
politics since high school. In the 
1976 presidential campaign, he was 
a volunteer for Ronald Reagan. 
While a student at Elon, he was a 
precinct chairman and vice-chairman 
of ihe Alamance County Republican 
party. In his senior year he ran for 
the North Carolina House of 
Representatives. He graduated from 
Elon in 1981 with a degree in 
political science and history. 

Page will not comment on his 
plans for the future, but it's hard to 
believe they will not include politics. 

Hall Con(. from page 5 

Occupational Orientation Inventory, 
which is widely used with people of 
all ages to measure career values. In 
his 25 years of counseling and 
testing experiences, he says, he has 
learned how surprisingly often 
people feel they are "stuck on the 
side tracks of life:" High school and 
college students feel lost and unsure 
about what career to pursue, the 
middle-aged feel they are locked into 
a life of dull, meaningless routines 
and retired people stare blankly at 
endless soap operas. Hall maintains 
it doesn't have to be thai way, and 
his new book tells the reader how to 
get on the right track

area bookstores or may be ordered

Following a picnic lunch held on 
the lawn in front of McEwen Dining 
Hall, the Fighting Christian football 
team met a strong Guilford College 
squad, which came away with a 
one-point victory. Although the 
Quakers won the game, the 
pageantry of the Homecoming show 
overshadowed the football score. 
The "Showband of the Carolinas," 
conducted by Jack White, 
performed at halftime just before 
U.S. Army parachutists — one 
carrying the Elon College flag — 
landed on the playing field. To 
climax the halftime ceremonies, 
Melinda Brown, a senior 
representing Sigma Pi fraternity, 
was crowned Homecoming Queen. 

The highlight of the weekend was

Soccer season 
closes with 
playoff loss 

Although Elon's soccer season 
ended on an unhappy note, a 3-1 
playoff loss lo High Point on Ocl. 
30, consolation prizes of posi-season 
individual honors have been rolling 
in for Coach Sieve Ballard and 
several of his players. 

Ballard was named Co-Coach of 
the Year in the Carolinas 
Conference along with Catawba 
Coach Ralph Wager. Elon and 
Catawba were conference 
co-champions with 5-1-1 records in 
the league. 

Ballard, Wager and Woody 
Gibson of High Point were selected 
as Tri-Coaches of the Year in 
District 26. 

Sweeper Joe Nepay, a 5-foot-lO, 
170-pound junior from Monrovia. 
Liberia, was voted Player of the 
Year. In 18 games, Nepay scored 
seven goals and had six assists for 
20poin!sanda 1.11 per-game 
average. A first-teamer on the 
National Junior College All-America 
team in 1982. Nepay is a former 
member of the Liberian national 
team. He did not play in 1983. 

Nepay and senior forward Paul 
Lawson made both the All-District 
26 and All-Conference teams. 
Seniors Andy Schaefer, Anthony 
Shtrwood and Joe Bartlinski made 
honorable mention All-Conference. 

Reflecting on the 1984 season, 
Ballard said, "We had a lot of 
talent, probably more than High 
Point or any other team in this 
league, but if you don't play to your 
potential every time you step on the 
field, you'll get beat. That's what 
happened against High Point." 

The Fightin' Christians' 11-7-1 
mark this year followed a mark of 
12-5-2 in 1983. 

Three winter

Writing Cont. from page 1 

professors and students, Dr. 
Vanderwerff allows. "Students are 
doing more writing than they have 
ever done before, and professors, 
who are already loaded with work, 
are being asked to try new ideas, to 
shift occasionally from the lecture 
mode to a more active, participatory 
classroom atmosphere." 

Vanderwerff reports that response 
has been good, however. Nearly all 
the faculty members who attended 
the fall workshop are experimenting 
with new writing techniques in their 
classes, and many are elated with 
the results. Vanderwerff keeps in 
close contact with all participating 
faculty, works with anyone who 
needs help, and tries to keep 
participants informed about what 
others are doing. Her future plans 
for the program include other 
workshops by nationally known 
experts, a spring writing fair in 
which participating faculty describe 
their successful writing assignments, 
and a broadenmg of the network to 
include other faculty members. She 
will also be encouraging faculty 
members who develop "writing as a 
means of learning" techniques to 
deliver papers at national 
conferences and submit them to 
appropriate journals. 

The Elon writing across the 
curriculum program has already 
attracted the attention of other 
colleges. The Piedmont Independent 
Colleges Association of North 
Carolina, of which Elon is a 
member, has adopted writing across 
the curriculum as a project for the 
year. Dr. Vanderwerff will 
spearhead the effort. In November 
she held an initial workshop for the 
writing directors of the other five 

colleges. In January Elon will host a 
workshop for the directors and 30 
key faculty members from their 

Vanderwerff is enthusiastic about 
writing across the curriculum and its 
future. "Many of the critics of our 
educational process today say that 
increasing student involvement in 
learning is essential. Students have 
been just sitting in class, listening to 
the lecture and playing it back on 
the exams, quickly forgetting 
anything they have learned. 

"Writing across the curriculum 
gets students involved. It forces 
them to think and they become 
better writers in the process. What 
we're really talking about here is 
creative teaching, creative learning 
and students respond to that."

Holland Family 
Makes $100,000 
Gift to Elon 

Members of rhe family of the late 
Shirley Thomas Holland of" Windsor. Va., 
have pledged $100,000 to Elon College in 
memory of their husband and father who 
served for more than 30 years on the col- 
lege's board of trustees. 

The gift comes as part o( the col- 
lege's *5.7 million PRIDE II campaign. 
In recognition of the gift, the Elon 
Board of Trustees executive committee 
has voted to name the president's 
home "Holland House." 

Those of the Holland family par- 
ticipating in the memorial gift are Mrs. 
Holland and sons, Dr. Clarence A. 
Holland of Virginia Beach, Va.; Dr. 
William E. Holland of Midlothian, 
Va., and Sen. Richard J. Holland of 
Windsor. The funds will be used for 
capital unrestricted expenditures as a 
part of the PRIDE II campaign. 

Shirley T. Holland 

hunds raised in the campaign will go 
CO the college's endowment scholar- 
ships and physical plant improvements 
including a new fine arts classroom 

The late Mr. Holland served as a 
trustee emeritus of the college from 
1946 until the time of his death in 
May 1983. He was a student at the 
college prior to World War I. Mr. 
Holland was a leading businessman in 
Windsor. He helped organize the 
Farmers Bank of Windsor in 1919 and 
served as chief executive until 1968 
when his son. Richard J. Holland, was 
elected president. The elder Holland 
then continued to serve as chairman of 
the bank's board of directors. He also 
was president of the Shirley T. 
Holland Insurance Agency and served 
on the Windsor Town Council. 

Mr. Holland was veteran of two 
decades of service in the Virginia 
House of Delegates, representing Isle of 
Wight and Nanscmond counties and 

Suffolk in the legislature. He was 
chairman of the House Insurance and 
Banking Committee and sponsored a 
number of major banking bills during 
his tenure. 

He also introduced the bill that 
created the Virginia Industrial 
Development Corp. and served as 
secretary and director of the corpora- 
tion. Another of his bills enables state 
employees, including teachers, to retire 
at age 60. 

After leaving the legislature in 1966. 
Mr. Holland was appointed by Gov, 
Mills E. Godwin, Jr. to do legislative 
liaison work during the General 
Assembly sessions. He was credited by 
Governor Godwin with being in- 
strumental in upgrading public educa- 
tion, creating the community college 
system and in getting the state retail 
sales tax bill passed,. 

"Few persons have given more of 
themselves to Elon College than 
Shirley Holland," said President Fred 
Young. "In addition to his leadership, 
he had the longest record of annual 
giving to the college, having con- 
tributed every year since records were 
kept. We are pleased to have this visi- 
ble tribute to Shirley Holland on the 
Elon Campus." 

Elon Tuition 
Remains Low 

While the cost of a private college 
education continues to increase in 
North Carolina, Elon College has 
managed to keep tuition low. A recent 
comparison among 18 similar colleges 
and universities in N.C. shows Elon to 
be third from the bottom in tuition 
and fees. 

The figures come from a recent issue 
of "The Chronicle of Higher Educa- 
tion" and were collected by the Col- 
lege Board for a survey, " The College 
Cost Book, 1984-85." Most colleges 
and universities in the state par- 
ticipated in the survey. 

Elon's tuition and fees of $3,290 for 
the 1984-85 school year ranked just 
above those of two other N.C. colleges 
when compared with private, coeduca- 
tional, four-year, predominantly white 
institutions. Fifteen similar colleges and 
universities in the state charged higher 
tuition and fees than Elon. 

The 6gures range from a low of 
$2,800 to a high of $7,681. Elon's cost 
of $3,290 is well below the average 
cost of $4,442. All North Carolina 
residents receive a $750 legislative tui- 
tion grant, reducing Elon's tuition for 
in-state students to $2,540. 

Elon College President Fred Young 
said the college maintains a low tuition 
through two primary programs - a cost 
consciousness on the part of all Elon 
employees and an aggressive fund- rais- 
ing plan. 

"First, and most important, Elon 
College has maintained a balanced 
budget for over 20 years," Young said, 
"by making a conscientious effort to 
keep expenses as low as possible. Our 
faculty and staff work hard to make 
Elon affordable. 

Smile when you say Elon! The 1985 Elon Phonathon was a success as 
alumni, parents and friends made pledges in record numbers. Alumni respond- 
ed enthusiastically to the "Let's Beat Davidson and Wake Forest Challenge." 
and, if all pledges are paid. Elon may well become the leader among the 
state's private colleges in alumni participation. Pledges are due May i, 1985. 

"Second, Elon's Development Office 
raises over $3 million a year, about a 
fourth of the $12 million budget at the 
college. These outside funds, from 
alumni, businesses and other groups, 
allow students to receive a college 
education for about three-fourths of 
the actual cost," Young noted- 
Contributions to the college have 
made possible several improvements in 
the beautification of the 150-acre cam- 
pus m the past few years. Most of 
these projeas have been completed 
through the generosity of individuals 
in the Elon College community and 
alumni from throughout the nation. 
"We have found that an environ- 
ment conducive to learning attracts 
students and builds pride in the in- 
stitution," Young said. 

Elon's successes have not been 
without problems. With 2,800 
students, the coeducational college has 
the third largest private undergraduate 
enrollment in the state. The growth 
has created overcrowding, and six new 
residence halls have been constructed 
in the past three years, a time when 
other colleges are struggling to main- 
tain enrollments. 

Even with the new dorms, the col- 
lege began the year with dozens of 
students in a local motel, although 
most overcrowding in rooms was 

As word of Elon's academic reputa- 
tion and low tuition spreads, the 
number of applications increases. In 
Virginia, for instance, where Elon's 
academic reputation and low costs are 
well known among high school 

students, more students who left the 
state attended Elon than any other 
college in the nation. 

Earlier this year, the admission re- 
quirements were increased for the first 
time in several years, and already ap- 
plications for next year are ahead at 
the college, which has rejected more 
students for next year than it had this 
time last year. 

"We're not complaining," Young 
pointed out. "These are problems 
many schools would like to have. But 
they are not without a cost." 

A part of that cost is a faculty that 
is overburdened and some classes 
larger than school officials would like. 

"Still, we find on surveys that 9? 
percent of our graduates list a close 
mentor relationship with a faculty 
member as the thing they like best 
about Elon College. We're very proud 
of that, and we want to continue offer- 
ing personalized attention at a 
reasonable price." 

Duncans Endow 

William H. and fCathryn M. Dun- 
can, of Greensboro. N.C, have 
established an endowed scholarship at 
Elon College to aid visually-impaired 
students. The Duncan Scholarship 
Fund will be restricted to deserving 
students who are legally blind or are 
low vision patients.

New Majors Added 

Elon Enters Television Age 

A new major in Ma<s Communica- 
tion, which will prepare studenrs for 
careers in radio and television, has 
been added to the Elon College cur- 
riculum. The faculty approved the new 
program in February and at the same 
time approved a major in Journalism 
to replace the existing English/Jour- 
nalism major. 

The new Mass Communication ma- 
jor is made possible by the recent ad- 
dition of a television production studio 
on the first floor of Mooney Building 
and the purchase of television equip- 
ment. The college already has a cam- 
pus radio station, WSOE-FM, which 
was increased to 500 watts last year. 

According to Dr. Chris White, vice 
president for academic and student af- 
fairs, Elon first began building a televi- 
sion program in the summer of 1984 
after Cablevision of Alamance ap- 
proached the college with a proposal 
to lay cable for an interna! campus 
television channel and asking the col- 
lege to provide programming for the 
local access cablevision channel. At 
that time \V. Ray Johnson was hired 
as coordinator of television services 
and communication, and basic televi- 
sion equipment was acquired. 

Beginning in the fall semester 
Johnson and a group of interested 

Meiselman Gives 
Land .To Elon 

A Charlotte businessman has con- 
tributed a gift of real estate appraised 
at 5255,000 to the Elon College PRIDE 
11 campaign. The donation came as a 
result of a suggestion by an alumnus 
li\'ing in Jacksonville, Fla. 

The businessman who made the gift, 
one of the major donations to the 
Elon PRIDE II campaign, is Ira S. 
Meiselman, 42-vear-old president of 
Eastern Federal Corp. Eastern Federal 
operates approximately 100 theaters in 
the southeastern United States. 
The Elon alumnus who influenced 
Mr. Meiselman to make the gift is 
\X'illiam H. Maness, class of 1938. and 
an attorney and partner in the firm of 
Maness and Kachergus of Jacksonville, 

"We have identified a number of 
land parcels over the last few years 
that we felt would make suitable gifts," 
Mr. Meiselman explained. "One of 
these was the site in Jacksonville. Our 
firm has been represented by Bill 
Maness over a period of years. When 
discussion arose concerning several 
parcels of land, including the one in 
Jacksonville, and possible recipients 
were mentioned, including the City of 
Jacksonville. Bill Maness lobbied for 
Elon in a friendly but persistent man- 
ner. We arc pleased to make the dona- 
tion to Elon." 

students produced a weekly cablcvison 
show entitled "Elon in Review" which 
is shown over the Alamance and 
Guilford county local access channels. 
In January, more equipment was pur- 
chased and the Mooney videotaping 
classroom was converted into a televi- 
sion production studio. Johnson and 
Gerald Gibson, assistant professor of 
communications, are currently using 
the studio to teach Elon's first produc- 
tion course. 

"Elon now has video facilities 
equivalent to that of most small televi- 
sion studios and many larger institu- 
tions," said Johnson. "And we have 
some added advantages. 

"At most larger universities the 
students never get to touch the 
sophisticated equipment. That privilege 
IS reserved for graduate students and 
professors only. Our students will get 
to use everything. 

"Also, in most other schools, even in 
graduate programs, the tapes that are 
created arc never seen by anyone 
other than the class and the professor. 
We will have the ability to cablecast 
live fi-om the studio, Whitley 
Auditorium, Alumni Gymnasium and 
the new fine arts center, and our pro- 
grams will actually be seen by an au- 
dience either over the campus channel 
or the local access channel." 

Mr. Meiselman. a native of Fayette- 
viile who has lived in Charlotte most 
of his life, is a graduate of the Whar- 
ton School of Business of the Universi- 
ty of Pennsylvania. His wife Jenny is a 
graduate of Duke University with a 

Ira S. Meiselman 

master's degree and a doctorate trom 
the University of North Carolina at 
Chapel Hill. She is a licensed practic- 
ing psychologist. The couple has two 

"Loyal alumni like Bill Maness and 
generous benefactors like Ira 
Meiselman arc two of the chief reasons 
Ekan can continually upgrade the 
quality of its program," said President 
Fred Young. "We are grateful to both 
these men for this gift."

Francis Named 
To Dean's Post 

Dr. Gerald L. Francis, former pro- 
fessor of mathematics, has been named 
dean of academic affairs at Eton 

Dr. Francis has served as associate 
dean of academic affairs since June, 
1983. As dean he will be responsible 
to the vice president for academic and 
student affairs for the supervision and 
development of the academic program 
of the college. 

"Dr. Francis has done an excellent 
job as professor, department chairman, 
and associate dean," said Vice Presi- 
dent Chris White. "He has tremendous 
support from the faculty and [ am con- 
vinced that this appointment will be a 
positive step for Elon College." 

Dr. Francis, a native of the 
Washington. D.C. area, graduated 
from Appalachian State University. He 
received his master's degree from ASU 
and his Ph.D. degree from Virginia 
Polytechnic Institute and State 

Before joining the Elon faculty in 
l'^74, Dr. Francis taught in the 
Virginia public school system and at 
ASU. From 1978-84 he served as 
chairman of the Elon Math Depart- 
ment and was instrumental in the for- 
mation of the Computer Information 
Science Program. 

BI Foundation 
Gives To PRIDE 

Burlington Industries Foundation has 
pledged $50,000 to the Elon College 
PRIDE 11 Campaign, college officials 
have announced. The funds will be 
used toward the construction of the 
proposed fine arts center. 

"We arc cognizant of the fine work 
being done at Elon and the large 
number of employees' children who 

have benefited from the college and its 
services over recent years," said Park 
R. Davidson, executive director of the 

The fine arts center will be con- 
structed on Williamson Avenue near 
the site of the present track. A new- 
all-weather track and soccer field have 
been built on the northern end of the 
campus near the Koury Field House. 

"This grant from the Burlington 
Industries Foundation will go a long 
way towards helping Elon College pro- 
vide this needed addition to our fine 
arts program," Elon College President 
Fred Young said. "We are grateful for 
the sense of community needs the 
Burlington Industries Foundation has 
recognized in making this substantial

Trustees, has been in elective office 

for 62 years - a U.S. record 

Story and Photo 
By Mary Ellen Priestley 

Thdd Eurc fuis been chairman o/ che Ei"n LUh 

The young boy walked with his 
lather through the corridors of 
the state capitol in Raleigh. If 
memory is correct, the year was about 
1913, and the pair had come by train 
from Gates County to see the sights, 
the first glimpse of the city for the 
boy. The highlight of the tour was the 
capitol. for the father admired and 
respected the elected government of- 
ficials. He was showing his eldest child 
where these great men worked for the 
people of Nofth Carolina. 

In those days state officials, from the 
governor down, received their consti- 
tuents, heard their problems or sugges- 
tions, and talked with them. As the 
boy and his father walked along the 
halls of the capitol, the boy saw 
"Governor" on one door, "Lt. Gover- 
nor" on the next, "Secretary of State" 
on another, but all the doors were 
closed. He longed to see inside, to see 
these respected persons, but his father 
had no reason to knock on the doors, 
and they walked on, This experience 
impressed the boy. Why were the 
doors shut? What went on behind 

At the end of the day, a foot-weary 
Tazewell Eure and his son Thad 
returned to the Gates County farm in 
eastern North Carolina, not far from 
the Virginia line. Tazewell Eure, an 
only child, had inherited the farm 

from his father, ownership by the fami- 
ly going back to an original land 

Thad had gone to a one-room, one- 
teacher school, trudging through all 
kinds of weather for the six-month 
school terms. He carried a tin lunch 
bucket holding a piece of side-meat, a 
sweet potato and a cold biscuit. Dur- 
ing his six month vacations, he work- 
ed on his father's farm. For high 
school, he walked three miles to and 
from Gatesville, the county seat, for 
four years, 1913-1917. Here he studied, 
played football and thought about 
what he was going to do. 

"1 never thought of anything but 
practicing law," Thad Eure says. "So 
my father said 1 should go to the 
University in Chapel Hill where there 
was a law school. I'm satisfied that if 
Elon College had had one law book, 
he would have sent me there, for Elon 
College was a part of our family's life 
always. My grandfathers on both sides 
were devoted to Elon. An aunt of 
mine went there, and later my sister 
and two brothers, and four of my

of North Carolina two years for 
general studies and pre-law and two 
years for law. He traveled back and

(orch from home to university by 
rrnin. One day as he returned to 
Chapel Hill, he met pretty Minta 
Banks, on her way back co St. Mary's 
College in Raleigh. 

"No, I didn't visit her at St. Mary's," 
he recalls wirh a chuckle. "A man 
couldn't get inside the door at a girl's 
school in those days, but we did write 
letters. And I saw her in Winton, her 
home in Hertford County about nine 
miles from our farm." 

After graduation from law school, 
Eute remembers he did not wish to go 
too far from his father's garden and 
smokehouse, for these were hard times 
in the early I920's. He happened to 
find space for a desk at a law office in 
Winton, however, and set out by mule 
cart for Winton with a desk, some 
books and clothing. When he reached 
the bank of the Chowan River, he had 
to pull the raft-type ferry across the 
river. Then he made his way to the 

"For the little things I did in my 
practice that first year, I was most 
often paid in hams, meat, vegetables 
from gardens or fish from the river," 
Eure says. "You may find this hard to 
believe now, but for the first year my 
cash receipts totaled less than $100. 
But I stuck it out." 

A friendly, tall young lawyer who 
liked to talk with the residents of his 
new hometown, Eure decided to enter 
the 1923 race for mayor of Winton. 
He won. He was also chosen Hertford 
County attorney and was given an of- 
fice in the courthouse. 

Eure was seeing Minta Banks, and 
he knew that he wanted to marry her. 
But he had vowed that he would not 
marry until he was 25 years of age. 
"Minta says I am stubborn," he adds, 
but did agree co the first possible day. 
November 15, 1924, his 25th birthday! 
They were married in Winton. 

Eure served as mayor of Win- 
ton until 1928 and county at- 
torney until 1931. In the 
meantime, in 1929 he was elected to 
the N.C. House of Representatives.- He 
was named principal clerk of the house 
for sessions of 1931, 1933, 1935 and 
the extra session in 1936. Already ac- 
tive in the Democratic Party, he was 
chosen Presidential elector for the First 
District, North Carolina, in 1932. 

In 1936 Eure threw his hat into the 
ring for the office of secretary of state. 
He won and has won in every election 
since, through November 1984, for 
four-year terms. And so he is into his 
49th year as secretary of state and his 
62nd year of continuous elective office. 
According to the Council of State 
Governments, Secretary Eure's record 
tops all national records for longevity 
in elective office. 

What is this man's secret for suc- 
cessful re-election? There are no 
secrets, he says, but he adds that cer- 
tain events and persons taught him 
valuable lessons. 

"I'll remember always that first trip 
to the capitol with my father when I 
never saw an open door. It made an 
impression on me. So when I was 
elected secretary of state, I took the 
nameplate off my office door and at- 
tached it to the Inside and left the 
door open. With the door open, a per- 
son entering can see whose office this 
is and can see into the office. For 48 

years-now into the 49th-no person 
has seen my door closed during office 

"I have served with 13 consecutive 
governors of North Carolina. I recall 
one governor's visit to my office. He 
came in, walked to a chair and started 
to sit. Just before hitting the bottom of 
the chair, he stood and walked to the 
door, took the doorknob, and I said, 
'I've been here several years and that 
door has stayed open. Please, let's not 
close it now. If we must talk behind 
closed doors, could we go to your of- 
fice?' " The governor left the door 
open and came back to talk. 

"Don't think others don't know 
about that open door," Eure con- 
tinues. "This policy led to a related 
one. No secretary of mine ever asks. 
'Who's calling?' when a telephone 
caller does not identify himself or 
herself. [ will not permit that. You 
know the main purpose of asking is so 
you can decide whether you'll talk or 
not. I will talk to them. And no 
secretary brings me a calling card from 
a visitor. If a person wants to see me, 
and I am in my office. I see him 
regardless of his station in life. This 
policy has stood me in good stead 
through the years. 

"A person who gave me valuable in- 
formation was Governor Clyde R. 
Hoey. He was elected governor the 
same year I became secretary of state. 
This man looked the part of a 
statesman; he dressed the part, and he 
knew how to handle people and ad- 
dress the issues. In those days people 
came to see the governor and they saw 

Eure recalls a revealing incident 
when a group of Gates County citizens 
thought they had an answer to a pro- 
blem. They made appointment to see 
Governor Hoey. Before they visited 
the governor that day. they came by 
to ■^ee Eure and tell him why they had 
come to Raleigh. As they left for their 
appointment. Eure suggested they drop 
in before they left for home co let him 
know how the governor had taken 
their ideas. 

"They did come by and all sat 
down," Eure says. "I asked them how 
things went. One person looked 
around at the rest, and then he said, 
'Governor Hoey is one of the finest 
men we ever saw. He's a good man, 
coo. You know, he has a lot of prob- 
lems, and he's doing the best he can.' 
So they had not even mentioned why 
they had come. They all looked 
satisfied. They smiled, and they left. 
"Now Governor Hoey knew what 
they were coming to see him about. 
He also knew he couldn't do anything. 
But he was a man who could play 
quarterback, call the plays, and run 
the ball. He understood people," Eure 

Another policy that has helped 
maintain Eure's popular support, he 
believes, has been his attitude toward 
school children. When so many public 
officials do not wane co be bothered 
with noisy, questioning, nosey 
children, Eure has always welcomed 
them. He invites them into his office, 
shakes their hands, asks about cheir 
visit to Raleigh and their hometowns. 
Then the last thing he says to them is 
"Remember me to your papas and 

mamas," and he says, "They've been 
doing that through the years." 

Does the secretary spend much time 
campaigning for re-election? "Oh. yes," 
he says. "One friend said I start before 
sunrise the morning after election and 
never stop! I've never spent much 
money on getting elected though." 

Today Eure presides over the 
Department of the Secretary 
of State with five divisions 
for its multitude of responsibilities. 
When he was elected in 1936, he head- 
ed a Department of State with seven 
members. In the first full year. 1937. 
for example, they issued charters to 
about 700 business corporations. In 
1984. with 53 employees, the depart- 
ment issued more than 12,000 charters. 

When he began as secretary, the 
department served as custodian of the 
state constitution and all the laws 
enacted. He was a member of the 
Council of State, he attested 
documents signed by the governor and 
the use of the great seal of the state, as 
well as issuing charters to businesses. 
The divisions of the department today 
are Publications, Corporations, 
Securities, Uniform Commercial Code 
and General Administration. 

"It is interesting the way I found my 
deputy in the Uniform Commercial 
Code Division," says Eure. "I was at 
the Elon College graduation in 1970, 
sitting on the platform when a young 
man graduate attracted my attention. 
His name was Charles Moore. After 
the ceremony I tried to find him in 
the crowd but couldn't, and so I 
telephoned him and offered him a job. 
He accepted. That young man had no 
vacation after graduation. Today he is 
in charge of the UCC Division." 

Eure likes best those parts of his 
work that bring him into contact with 
people. Administering the oath of of- 
fice, as for highway patrolmen and 
members of the general assembly, give 
him opportunities co meet a wide 
range of North Carolina people. 
Recently, he swore in the new com- 
mander of the highway patrol, and at 
the ceremony he noted that he had 
administered the oath of office to this 
officer at every promotion in his 
career. The same was true of the se- 
cond officer in command. 

Added to Thad Eure's numerous ac- 
tivities has been his service as a 
member of the Elon College Board of 
Trustees for 43 years and its chairman 
for 30. He has served during the 
presidencies of L.E.Smith, Earl 
Danieley. and Fred Young, With ex- 
tensive family ties to the college and 
his own long and devoted service, he 
thinks now of its future. 

"One thing worrying to all indepen- 
dent college or university adminiscra- 
cions is financing. The cuts in federal 
funds to students and institutions as 
well as the coming strain on state 
budgets makes financing more difficult. 
States are receiving added respon- 
sibilities under the Reagan administra- 
tion and less funding to help carry out 
these responsibilities." 

Eure thinks that Elon College is for- 
tunate to have Fred Young as presi- 
dent of the North Carolina Associa- 
tion of Independent Colleges and 
Universities. "He enjoys a fine position 
among the state's institutions of higher 

learning, and he has given a lot co the 
association. North Carolina owes 
much to its independent colleges, and 
the state couldn't make it without 
them, couldn't pay for all the 
buildings, equipment, services and 
faculties they represent in order to 
educate qualified people. That's what 
the state would be required by law to 
do if we didn't have these independent 

As an active Democrat, Thad 
Eure was keynote speaker at 
the 1950 Democratic state 
convention. He served as its perma- 
nent chairman for the 1962, 1978 and 
1982 state conventions. He still votes 
in Winton whose district named him 
Presidential elector in 1932. 

Is the Democratic Party in North 
Carolina in disarray? No, he says, 
although It did suffer the biggest blow 
in his lifetime last fall, losing races for 
the U.S. Senate, governor, and two 
Congressmen. "The Democratic Party 
has always bounced back, and it -will 
again. The party will be renewed 
rapidly, and the results will be seen in 
the next election," Eure says with the 
assurance of an elder statesman. 

Thad Eure has come to be known 
by two personal crademarks-his red 
bow tie and his green ink pen. "I can't 
remember ever wearing a four-in-one 
tie," he says. "Well, maybe once. 
When I was at the Sir Walter Raleigh 
Hotel one day before the election, a 
man from Scotland County came up 
and said, 'Eure, my conscituencs won't 
vote for you if you wear that fool tie. 
Here, put this one on!' And he held a 
four-in-one tie around my neck while 
his friend cook a picture of me. 

"The trouble is chat I can't find 
these bow ties in shops. My daughter 
Armecia (Mrs. Norman Black) has a 
friend who makes them and Armecia 
gives me a supply at Christmas." 

Using green ink to sign his name on 
documents also began back when 
everyone used a fountain pen filled 
from a botde of ink. One governor's 
secretary estimated then that, given a 
governor in four years executes about 
50.000 official documents and all are 
attested by the secretary of state, Eure 
would have used more than five 
gallons of the green liquid just in sign- 
ing his name! 

Secretary Eure wears a hat while 
most of America goes hatless. He tops 
off his attire in the cold months with a 
felt hat. In the spring he dons a straw- 
hat. "My father always started wearing 
his hard-straw sailor on April 5th. 
his birthday, as he went into the 
village of Eure or Eure's Station where 
my father's uncle had a store and the 
Atlantic Coast freight trains went 

Last summer Thad and Minta Eure 
moved from their Raleigh home of 39 
years to a pleasant one-story house 
with solarium and deck facing che 
woods. "We hated to give up our 
home, but Mrs. Eure has arthritis, 
Eure says, "and we needed to have a 
one-story house. Here on this quiet 
road we are close to Thad jr.'s home," 
Thad Eure has been given numerous 
awards, citations, and accolades for his 
distinguished public service, but he 
takes greatest pride in the confidence 
people have shown him through re- 
elections for 62 years. This is the jewel 
in his crown. 

The Magazine of Elon March, 1985 5 


Everybody's talking about educational excellence, but principal 
Wilma Parrish, Elon '57, is doing something about it. In 
a recent study, her middle school was named one of the top 
four in the nation. 

By Mary Owens Fitzgerald 

Amid squeals of delight the 
master of ceremonies at 
Western Middle School 
fervently announces, "Our next contes- 
tant is that lovely songbird, our very 
own principal, Mrs. Wilma Btown Par- 
rish. bringing you'The Flivver Song." 

Will yoit love me when my spark 

plugi they have msced 

And ni\ inner tubes have lost their 

self -respect 

When m\ radiator is leaking and 

my fenders are squeaking 

Will you love me when my flivver 

is a wreck?" 

intones Wilma Parrish to the au- 
dience's delight. 

Bedecked in her bright flapper 
costume, comfortable and at ease as a 
leading contestant on the Faculcv 
Gong Show, Mrs. Parrish is an en- 
thusiastic educator who knows that 
learning can and should be fun. 
Laughter, rewards, individual attention 
and mutual respect are a few of the 
components that make learning at 
Western Middle School m Alamance 
County, North Carolina, vital and na- 
tionally recognized. The creative force 
shaping this school yito an extraor- 
dinary environment for learning is 
Wilma Brown Parrish, Elon '57. 

The selection of Western Middle 
School in 1980 as one of the four 
outstanding schools in the nation for 
Jo.3n Lipsici's study, Success/ul Schools 
for Young Adolescents, is perhaps the 
most significant recognition of Mrs. 
Parrish's achievements. Mrs. Lipsitz, 
director of the Center for Early 
Adolescence at the University of 
North Carolina at Chapel Hill ex- 
amines four effective and successful 
middle schools chat foster healthy 
social development and academic 
achievement. Western Middle appears 
in Lipsitz's study as "Proud Country." 

Born in 1922 to Olivia and Billy 
Brown, Wilma Brown finished Burl- 
ington High School in 1941 and mar- 
ried William E. Parrish in 1942. Short- 
ly [hereafter, the young couple bought 
a small home and invited her mother 
to live with them. A son, Lewis, and a 
daughter, Betty, were born and the 
years passed for Mrs. Parrish in the 
role of the traditional homemaker. 

Fourteen years after finishing high 
school, Mrs. Parrish was asked to 
substitute for Betty's first grade teacher 
at Elon Elementary School. She 
delighted the children with a 
Christmas tea, stories and songs woven 
into their academic work. The prin- 
cipal, Dr. Hill, was so impressed with 
this natural born teacher he offered a 
job without hesitation, only to 

discover that her formal education 
ended with high school. 

Determined to see her in the 
classroom. Dr. Hill pressured Mrs. Par- 
rish to keep an appointment with thf 
registrar at Elon College. She left the 
office slightly dazed, for she found 
herself enrolled to begin classes im- 

Mrs, Parrish's determination 
took her soaring through 
classes at Elon, and she 
completed the course work in three 
years. "Elon was good to me," she 
reminisces. She played the piano and 
worked in the student store to help 
with expenses. Her husband worked a 
second job. She majored in English 
and gravitated toward drama, art and 
music courses that complemented her 
natural talents and interests. Though a 
wife and mother, she was active on 
campus as a dav student, served her 
sorority as president (wears her sorori- 
ty pen in her lapel to this day) and 
participated in Drama Club activities. 
At graduation. Mrs. Parrish lacked 
only two drama courses for a double 
major. She plays the piano for pleasure 
and entertainment and readily admits, 
"I'm a ham." Coupled with her gift to 
make each student realize how special 
he is, the talents inherited from her 
mother provided the raw materials 
necessary for a superb teacher. 

After eleven years as a teacher at 
Elon Elementary School, Mrs. Parrish 
was offered principalship at South 
Mebane Elementary School. Two and 
a half years later, she became principal 
at Alcamahaw-Ossipee Elementary 
School. One of the most remarkable 
incidents in the Parrish's life occurred 
during this period. Grandparents 
themselves, they "adopted" a son. 

Jimmy first appeared in Mrs. Par- 
rish's life at Altamahaw-Ossipee the 
day Social Services enrolled a curly- 
headed little fellow shrinking down in- 
to the scruffy fur collar on his worn 
grey coat. Fear and anxiety filled his 
clear blue eyes. Mrs. Parrish's gentle 
but firm hug dispelled his fears. Warm- 
ed and relaxed, Jimmy eased into her 
heart and life. The bond between 
them grew. 

However, in November 1972, Social 
Services planned to place jimmy in a 
home out-of-state. Aware that he had 
been in eight foster homes in his brief 
nine years, Mrs. Parrish and her hus- 
band went to court, challenged Social 
Services and on April 27, 1973, 
won the custody battle for Jimmy. 

In 1978 Elon Elementary and 
Altamahaw-Ossipee merged 
into Western Middle School 
and Mrs. Parrish was appointed prin- 

Wilma Parrish began college 15 years after high school. She has since become 
one of the most successful principals in the nation. 

cipal. She participated in the original 
planning, worked with architects, the 
School Board and educational commit- 
tees to achieve a setting that would 
stimulate and invite learning. Today, 
six years later, the building is spotless, 
with only gentle signs of wear. 

Nestled among the landscaped beds 
of azaleas and hollies is the plaque 
denoting Western Middle as the reci- 
pient of the Alamance Beautification 
Special Schools Pride Award. How are 
such extras funded? "Money is not a 
problem," comments Mrs. Parrish. Her 
willingness to solve a problem with her 
own energy and elbow grease as well 
as personal funds is inspirational to 
those around her. The entire com- . 
muntty has been infused with a spirit 
of pride for Western Middle School- 
As one colleague noted, "Mrs. Parrish 
takes her resources and makes gold 
when others only make tin." 

Though Mrs. Parrish is completely in 
charge of her school, each of her 
teachers knows she is approachable, 
that they have freedom to function in 
the style best suited to them. 

The curriculum is interdisciplinary 
and built around varied themes. Staff 
development is a priority. Developmen- 
tal activities are a priority. Field trips 
include fascinating workbooks that in- 
corporate fun into the academic re- 
quirements. Above all, basics are a 
priority: "Don't interrupt the basics!" 
Two block periods provide uninter- 
rupted time for academic basics daily. 

Undergirding all Mrs. Parrish's 
natural talent is a sound philosophy of 
education developed during her years 
at Elon and the University of North 
Carolina at Greensboro where she 
earned her Master's Degree in educa- 
tion in 1963, Deeply etched into her 
philosophy are these key words:Goa£s, 
organization and flexibility. 

How does one account for 
Western Middle's success? 
Lipsitz quotes Mrs. Parrish as 
saying. "Anyone can do what we did 
with a united faculty, complete 
readiness on day one, and constant 
questioning: "How can we be the best? 
How can we make it inviting?" 

Since the publication of Successful 
Scfiooli /or Yoitng Adolescents, requests 
CO speak have come steadily into Mrs. 
Parrish's office. Though she en- 
thusiastically shares her concepts about 
adolescent education, she misses the 
time with her students and faculty. 
That is where her heart is, and chat is 
what she loves; the interaction with 
her scudents. She knows them all by 
name. She loves them each for who 
they are. She taught James Turner at 
Eton Elementary. His son Rick is now 
at Western Middle. James says Mrs, 
Parrish is the "finest woman I've ever 
known. She likes her kids and takes 
time with them." Rick echoes his dad's 
remarks with "she's always your 

The greacest reward for Mrs. Parrish 
is the confidence and trust of her 
students. "Seeing the children build a 
good self-image and succeed" is her 
way of knowing that she has done her 
job, and done it well. 

Mrs. Parrish cites lack of time as the 
most serious problem. "There just 
isn't time to do everything," she mus- 
ed. "Maybe in retirement there will be 
time. ..time to do some writing, to edit 
my late mother's poetry." 

For someone as vital and vigorous as 
Wilma Brown Parrish, retirement 
seems remote. It is inconceivable that 
her sparks plugs would ever rust if her 
windshield wipers shed bitter tears. But 
from those whose lives she has touch- 
ed, there is a resounding "YES" when 
she asks, "Will you still love me when 
my flivver is a wreck?"

mise en scene 

By Jim Schlosser 

If you like movies, you'll love 
John Sparks. 
His name doesn't appear on a 
movie marquee, only on a small direc- 
tory in the lobby of the Green Valley 
Office Building. 

He's a certified public accountant, 
age 60, a grandfather. In one corner of 
his ofice is a bookcase filled with such 
tomes as "Federal Taxes Affecting Real 
Estate," "Federal Income Gift: and 
Estate Taxation" and "Tax Planning 
for Executive Compensation." 

Sparks walks over to the bookcase, 
fishes around and pulls out "Dic- 
tionary of Film." 

He was having trouble tememhering 
I969's movie of the year. He 
was "The Graduate," but, no. the 
Dustin Hoffman classic was released in 
196? and was passed over for the cop 
award that year by Rod Steiger's "In 
the Heat of the Night," 

Ah, "Midnight Cowboy" - that's 
what won in 1969. 

Such slipups are rare for Sparks. 
Name any movie and he ticks off the 
year it was made, who starred, how 
many, if any. Academy Awards it 
won, and lots of other facts, figures 
and fascinating details. 

Who is the only actor to win two 
Academy Awards back-to-back? 
Stumped? Stumped? Sparks isn't. 

Not only does Sparks know his 
movies, but he can even tell the 
theaters he munched popcorn in while 
watching them. 

Some examples: 
"Mutiny on the Bounty" — "I caught 
that one at the Paramount in Burl- 
ington in 1935. It was voted the best 
movie in 1935. Three actors - Clark 
Gable, Charles Laughton and Fran- 
chot Tone - all were nominated for the 
Academy Award. Victor McLaglen got 
it instead for "The informer." 
"Gone With The Wind" — "It open- 
ed in Greensboro on Feb. 12, 1940, at 

John Sparks 

a man who knows movies 

John Sparks '50 not only remembers moi'ics. he re 

the National Theatre. I remember that 
because my brother and 1 got confused 
and came over from Burlington a week 
early to see the movie. So we went 
back to Burlington and saw a film 
Which one? 

"It was 'Arizona' with William 
Holden and Jean Arthur. We saw it ar 
the State Theatre. I liked it, my 
brother didn't. I finally saw 'Gone 
With The Wind' later, at the State." 
"Manhattan Melodrama" — "I saw 
that in 1935 at the National in 
Greensboro. That was the movie John 
Dillinger had just left in Chicago when 
he was shot by the FBI. The movie 
starred Clark Gable, Myrna Loy and 
William Powell." 

Sparks' favorite year for movies was 

"1 can sit right here and name 10 
classics made that year." he says. 

He winds up naming 12: "Destry 
Rides Again," "Gone With The 
Wind," "Gunga Din," "Stanley &, Liv- 
ingstone," "Jesse James." "Goodbye, 
Mr. Chips," "Union Pacific," "The 
Hound of the Baskervilles," "The 
Oklahoma Kid," ("one of the few 
westerns that James Cagney ever 
made"). "Dodge City," "The Wizard of 
Oz" and "Wuthering Heights." 
By 1939, the talkies had been 
perfected. The big movie studios were 
in keen competition to make 
blockbusters. "And it's possible that 
1939 was the last year chat didn't feel 
the influence of World War II," Sparks 

"World War II changed everything. 
That's why I chink 'Gone With The 
Wind' was so popular. It depicted an 
era that was gone forever. And its ap- 
pearance coincided wich an era that 
was gone forever." 

Before World War II, Sparks 
lived an idyllic life in Burl- 
ington, watching every shoot- 
'cm-up western that played at the city's 
four movie houses: the Paramount. 
Alamance. State and Carolina, plus 
che Graham, where he remembers see- 
ing "Trail of che Lonesome Pine" in 

"I would get the dime from 
somewhere," he says of the admission 
price. "When the newspaper came I 
remember I always turned to the 
movie section first." 

Psychologists surely would diagnose 
Sparks as having a deep-seated desire 
to be a glamorous movie star. Not so. 
He says he just loves the movies. He 
doesn't think he's really any different 
from most Americans. 

"This country is very movie- 
minded," he says. "What we wear is 
influenced by the movies. Our presi- 
dent is a former movie star. For a long 
time, actors have been in politics; Jane 
Fonda and Paul Newman. A long time 
ago, an actor named Edward Arnold 
was close to Eleanor Roosevelt." 

Sparks has deep affection for old 

movies, but he doesn't turn his nose 
up at what's on che screen today, 

"1 think the movies now are just as 
good as any ever made." he says. He 
was enchanted with Barbra Streisand 
in "The Way We Were." He thinks 
"Ghandi" will become a classic. He 
thought Robert Redford's "The 
Natural" was outstanding. He loved 
"The World According to Garp." He 
liked the fast pace of "Raiders of che 
Lost Ark." 

While he thinks older movies are 
charming because they leave something 
to the imagination regarding sex, he's 
not always offended by today's nudity 
or graphic language. "If it's handled 
right, it doesn't detract from the 
movie." he says. 

He was, however, startled by the 
profanity in "On Golden Pond." 
although he liked the film. "1 just 
wasn't used to Henry Fonda using that 
kind of language." 

He prefers to remember Fonda in 
"My Darling Clemencine," which 
Sparks rates as che top western ever. 
He says the best detective movie ever 
made was "The Maltese Falcon"; che 
best musicals, "My Fair Lady" and 
"Cabarec"; the best movies with social 
impact, "The Grapes of Wrath" and 
"From Here to Ecernicy"; and the besc 
adventure movie, "The Bridge on che 
River Kwai." 

"Gone Wich the Wind" is the besc 
overall film, he says. 

At his home Sparks has a 
library containing 80 movie 
books. He has 50 films on cassette. He 
does most of the movie watching these 
days in front of the television. "I really 
don't go CO the movies much anymore, 
maybe twice a year," he says. 

He doesn't play "Trivial Pursuit," 
but he'd be unbeatable if he did. 

Incidentally, the only actor co win 
back-co-back Academy Awards was 
Spencer Tracy for "Captains 
Courageous" in 1937 and "Boys 
Town" in 1938. 

"I didn't see 'Courageous' until years 
later — on television," he says. "I saw 
'Boys Town' the year it came out - in 
Mebanc at "The Mebane."

Morrison to 
Leave Elon 

Danny Morrison, assistant basketball 
coach, tennis coach and assistant 
athletic director at Elon, will become 
athletic director at Wofford College, 
Spartanburg, S.C., at the end of the 
1Q85 basketball season. 

Morrison, 31, is a 1975 honors 
graduate of Wofford and was a star 
guard on the Terriers' basketball team. 
He \\'ill take over the athletic director's 
duties from Billy Parker, who resigned 
last Dec. 20 as AD and head football 

Morrison, who attended Walter 
Williams High School in Burlington, 
began his coaching career at Williams 
after graduating from Wofford. He 
joined the Elon staff in 1979 as tennis 
coach and assistant to head basketball 
coach Bill Morningstar. Three years 
ago Morrison began working as an 
assistant to athletic director Alan 

Saying that he regretted leaving 
Elon, Morrison stated, "I look at my 
new job at Wofford as a challenge and 
an opportunity. As athletic director at 
Wofford, I look forward to a conti- 
nuance of good relations with Elon 

"I think Wofford made an excellent 
choice in picking Danny to help 
restructure their athletic program," 
said Elon AD White. 

"Danny has done an outstanding job 
for us as an assistant basketball coach 
and recruiter. He was just as efficient 
with the tennis team, which he has 
turned into a winner. We hate to lose 
a man of his caliber, but we wish him 

"Danny is one of the finest people 
I've been associated with, not only as a 
co-worker but as a friend," Morn- 
ingstar said. "He's been very loyal to 
our basketball program at Elon, very 
dedicated in every respect. He's not a 
person you can really replace because 
of his many tine qualities." 

Kelly Retires 
After 17 Years 

An era in Elon College athletics 
ended on December 31, 1984 \vhen 
Coach Don Kelly retired after 17 

Kelly was the last of former Coach 
"Red" Wilson's assistants to leave the 
college. Wilson and his staff are 
credited with first bringing national 
recognition to the Elon football 

Kelly came to Elon in 1967 from 
Fayetteville (N.C.) High School as 
chairman of the physical education 
department and assistant football 
coach. He had previously coached at 
Winston-Salem Reynolds High School 
where his team earned two state titles. 

Kelly began his Elon coaching career 
tutoring defensive and offensive end 

linebackers. As the coaching staff grew 
he became more specialized and drop- 
ped offensive ends. Since Wright 
Anderson's tenure he has coached in- 
side linebackers only. 

Kelly always maintained a heavy 
teaching load. One of his proudest 
acomplishments is the establishment of 
the aquatics program. 

Under Kelly's guidance the program 
expanded greatly and now includes, 
among other courses, Water Safety In- 
struction and Scuba. Kelly has logged 
more than 2000 hours teaching these 
Red Cross programs. He has also been 
the coordinator of the skiing program. 

Coach Don Kelly 

Kelly will carry some great memories 
with him. "There have been so many," 
he says. "The playoff game with 
Hillsdale, Michigan at the stadium 
here was something. We won easily, 
the game was played in a cold 
downpour. 1 remember we spent lots of 
time on the sidelines cleaning mud out 
of the players' noses and ear^." 

Elon faculty and students will have 
their share of Kelly memories too. 
Seniors from the football team will 
recall hot days during summer ball 
when Kelly would appear with a swim 
cap full of ice on his head, socks rolled 
down and shirt sleeves and shorts roll- 
ed up! 

"Next to the word individual in the 
dictionary it says Don Kelly," athletic 
trainer Marty Baker often jokes. 

After his retirement, Kelly plans to 
continue teaching part-time in 
Winston-Salem where his home is. He 
is also interested in developing his skill 
playing the organ and in travel. 

"Lots of people will never know how 
much Don Kelly has meant to the 
Elon football program." said head 
coach Macky Garden, "And more 
than that he is one of the nicest per- 
sons you'll find anywhere." 

"It will be difficult to find a person 
with the variety of abilities and the 
dedication of Coach Kelly," added Dr. 
Jante Brown, head of the Department 
of Physical Education.

Men's Basketball 

As of this writing the Elon men's 
basketball team stood at 17-6 overall 
and was leading the NAIA District 26 
competition with four games remain- 
ing. Pembroke State University was a 
close second in the district competi- 
tion, however, and the finish promised 
to be exciting. 

The front line of Robert Leak, Eric 
Hairston, and Rafael Hernandez and 
the backcourt of Vince Richardson 
and Ricky Larry have led the way for 
the Christians this season. 

Women's Basketball 

The Elon Golden Girls have con- 
tmued to have a few problems this 
year. Through Feb. 11, the team stood 
5-15 overall and 3-12 in the district. 
They last won on Januaty 21 when 
they defeated High Point in Alumni 
Gym by a 66-61 count. 

Jamie McNeelyleads the Elon scor- 
ing. The 5-11 junior forward from 
Icard, N.C, has blazed the nets for an 
18.7 scoring average. 


Elon College recently finished in se- 
cond place in the Washington 6t Lee 
Wrestling Invitational in Lexington, 
Va. The Christians were spearheaded 
by the top performance of Bobby 
Brown in the 150 weight class. 

Elon finished with 78 points, second 
to the host Generals 109'/2. In third 
was Hampden-Sydney with 48'/2, 
followed by Davidson 35, Pfeiffer 30. 
Washington &. Lee "B" team 23V4, and 
Lynchburg 4'/t. 

Other top performances were turned 
in by Mike Fitzgerald at 118 where he 
took second place. Also taking second 
place was Scott Crater at 142, and 
Fred McMannus in the heavyweight 

A week earlier, Elon hosted its own 
Southern Invitational in East Gym. 
The Christians finished third behind 
Pembroke State and Livingstone. PSU 
and Livingstone are ranked m the na- 
tion's top 20 for NCAA Division 11. 
Top performances were turned in by 
Brown in the 142 class where he took 
first place. McMannus took second in 
the heavyweight division. 

To start the year, Elon visited the 
prestigious Clemson Tiger 8 Invita- 
tional at Clemson, S.C. Elon finished 
in sixth place of the six teams but 
gained valuable knowledge because of 
the stiff competition.

The Zoo Crew 

By Johnnie Allen Renick '78 

One of the most precious memories 
of Eloii for me is a group of girls oil 
second floor of Sraiev Dorm. We tailed 
ourselves the "Zoo Crew" which was a 
name well chosen. We were devoted to 
each other and enjoyed ourselves cotal- 
Iv- We did wild things like organizing 
'■jpck raids," touring the campus par- 
ties, and creating a slogan for 
telephone use (not printable). 

Once in the middle of December, 
before our Christmas break, we dress- 
ed up for Halloween and ran frantical- 
ly through the boys' dorms. I'l! never 
forget the Halloween we charged 
freshmen IOg to view our eternally 
dead sleeper, Beth, During the night 
she slept with her eyes opened on her 
back with her hands clasped on her 
chest. We helped the effect with 
flowers stuffed in her hands. 

Our group had tee-shirts made with 
our nick-names on the back. We even 
had our picture taken for the year 
book. This July we have planned for 
our ten year reunion. We met 10 years 
ago this fall. The love and friendship 
we had may never come again. With 
each year, we remember our times

A placement office 
that works 

Elon*s Career Planning and Placement 
offices prepare undergrads for 
life after college 

by Carol Nix 

Elon College now has a Placement 
Office— and a new sec of goals for 
helping students and alumni finds jobs. 
Whereas before, the Elon career plan- 
ing and placement services were com- 
bined, they are now separate offices. 
This will allow each office to concen- 
trate on specific goals and plans in 
preparing Elon students for seeking 
employment. The Career Planning Of- 
fice works with students early in their 
academic lives at Elon by helping them 
decide on a major and on general 
career plans. As they become more 
specific about educational and career 
goals, they can begin to take advan- 
tage of placement services, 

Karen Thompson, Director of Place- 
ment, is planning to extend these ser- 
vices by expanding on-campus inter- 
viewing and by teaching students inter- 
viewing skills. "By the time a student 
comes to me. he should have a good 
idea of what he wants to do." she said. 
"I can give them the tools, but unless 
they sell themselves in an interview, 
they won't get the job." 

Thompson stresses the importance 
of being prepared for an interview. 
"Employers have different techni- 
ques. They want to see how you 
react in different situations." She 
suggests that students schedule a 
meeting with her before making con- 
tacts with employers through the 
Placement Office so that she can get 
to know them and know their per- 
sonal needs as well as the company's 
specifications for the job. "I want a 
company to look at me as if I were 
their personal recruiter," Thompson 
said. "I want their respect as well as 
Elon College's having their respect." 

Thompson seeks to instill profes- 
sionalism in every student she sends 
to an interview. "I mean business, 
and 1 don't lee our students inter- 
view unless chey mean business." On- 
campus interviews are a reflection of 
Elon College, and Thompson sees 
that each student is well-dressed and 
well-prepared. The Placement Office 
holds workshops to improve students' 
skills in interviewing and to make 
them aware of the importance of the 
impressions they make on employers. 

Alums Return to Elon 

Rmh Kimbdll Milling '28 salltes forth on a lour of the campus during Alumni 
Day 1985. The chauffeur is Chris Quad '85. More photos on page 2. 

Karen Thompson. Elon's new director of placement, is charged with helping 
Elon graduates find good jobs in their fields. She has a variety of plans 

Not only is it imperative that 
students look professional, but the 
Placement Office must also reflect an 
air of corporate style. Renovations 
such as the addition of an interview 
room are planned. This will make it 
possible for more than one student to 
interview at a time. Computer hard- 
ware wiJI be added so that Elon 
students and alumni records can be 
kept on file. This will also make it 
possible for students to find job listings 
in their field and current job openings. 
Tlie Placement Office plans to make 
"constant contact" with employers as 
well as alumni who may be able to 
hire Elon studenrs."Because Elon is 
small, we have to go to greater lengths 
to create an air of professionalism and 
offer things that other major univer- 
sities do not," TTiompson said. "We 
have to look like we mean business." 
Thompson added that they intend to 
have the Placement Office "look as 
professional as it would be at any com- 

Dean of Academic Affairs, Dr. 
Gerald Francis, also explained the 
changes being made in the Placement 
Office, "We want to take the concept 
of a standard placement office at a 
university and the concept of a profes- 
sional placement office in a business 
community and come up with an 
aggressive, professional placement office 
at Elon." Francis said that Elon does 
not want to forget about its students 
after they graduate. "We aggressively 
recruit students and we want to ag- 
gressively help students find positions." 

The Placement Office also plans to 
utilize the efforts of parents, friends, 
■indjilumni who may own their own 
i-ompany or are affiliated with a com- 
pany to help a student get a position. 
This may also give the office some 

contacts with these companies as well 
as with the people "who have a special 
place in their heart for Elon." Further- 
more, these contacts hopefully will 
advertise the mientions and capabil- 
ities of Elon's Placement Office Co 
those who share an interest in the 
future of Elon and the continued im- 
provements in Its programs in all 
areas. By exercising all possible entries 
into the professional community. Elon 
sets itself apart from ocher college 
placemenc programs. Thompson feels 
chat these contacts, as well as those 
on-campus interviews, make the dif- 
ference by preparing students for inter- 
view situations. "I think you not only 
have to be concerned with how many 
get jobs, but how to go about getting a 
job," she said. "It's very competitive." 
Elon is a small college, but its new 
placement program is a unique one. 
Many schools still have combined ca- 
reer planning and placement services. 
Elon's concentration in the direction 
of job preparacion and placemenc for 
students is part of its continued efforts 
to have a good percentage of its 
graduates employed. This primary goal 
has launched a quest for the combina- 
tion of education and professionalism. 
"Employers will see thac our students 
are well prepared, that they want the 
jobs, that they have a focus on what 
they want to do— and they ate 
serious," Thompson said. "If we stay 
along those lines, we should be suc- 
cessfijl." Elon is prepared to "give 
students the tools" as chey seek che

Governor Charles S. Robb of 
Virginia delivered the commence- 
ment address at Elon College on May 
19 when approximately 427 seniors 
received their diplomas. 

Commencement exercises began 
at 10:30 a.m. in Alumni Memorial 
Gymnasium and were open to tiie 1 

Governor Robb also received the 
honorary doctor of laws degree. 

Robb, a lawyer, was elected lieute- 
nant governor in 1977 and in 1981 
was chosen governor, receiving more 
voces than any candidate for state of- 
fice in Virginia's history. 

Robb was born in Phoenix, Arii. He 
was graduated from Mount Vernon 
High School in Fairfax, Va., in 1957. 
He attended Cornell University on a 
regional scholarship and the University 
of Wisconsin on an NROTC scholar- 
ship. He received his bachelor of 
business administration degree at 
Wisconsin in 1961 and his law degree 
from the University of Virginia in 
1973. He holds honorary degrees from 
a number of colleges. 

Governor Robb has been affliated 
with the military since 1957. He was 
student commander of all ROTC units 
on campus as an undergraduate and 
began active duty with the U.S 
Marine Corps in 1961. He served as 
commander of an infantry company in 
combat in Vietnam, where he received 
10 decorations. He remains a lieute- 
nant colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps 

Thad Eure 
Recognized by 
Elon Board 

Thad Eure, North Carolina's 
longtime secretary of state who also 
has been chairman o( the Board of 
Trustees of Elon College for 30 years, 
was honored during the annual spring 
meeting of the Board when a chair of 
political science at the college was 
named for him. 

Establishment of the Thad Eure 
Chair of Political Science, "to be oc- 
cupied in perpetuity by an outstanding 
member of the college faculty," was 
announced by Royall Spence, Jr. of 
Greensboro, vice chairman of the 
board, at a luncheon in Eure's honor. 

Eure was named a member of the 
Elon College Board of Trustees in 
1942. He was made chairman in 1955. 
His ancestors were among the pioneer 
members of the Christian Church 
which founded Elon, and it was 
through the church, now the United 
Church of Christ, that Eure became 
interested in the college. 

Gov. Charles S. Robb 
of Virginia 

Governor Robb is married to Lynda 
Johnson Robb, daughter of former

lege Community Church. Dr. Winfred

Church of the United Church of 
Christ in Burlington delivered the ser- 
mon. His daughter, Darla, was one of 
the graduating seniors.

graduation, their families and friends 
was scheduled for 5 p.m. on the se- 
cond floor of McEwen Dining Hall.

Elon College by a donor who wishes 

to remain anonymous. 

The gift will be divided equally for 
use in constructing a fine arts center 
on the Elon campus and for estab- 
lishing an endowment fund for 
students from Virginia.

Will Elon Be 
Number One? 

The 1985 Elon College Phonachon 
ended with a total of $141,258 pledged 
to the college, the largest amount in 
the six-year history of the Phonathon. 

A special challenge was issued this 
year, pitting Elon against Davidson 
College and Wake Forest University. 
Last year Elon alumni ranked third 
behind these two schools in the 
percentage of alumni who make an an- 
nual donation to their alma mater, out 
of 55 private and public colleges and 
universities in the state. 

According to Dr, Jerry Tolley, direc- 
tor of corporate and annual resources 
and Phonathon organizer, it is still too 
early to tell whether Elon has taken 
over the number one spot in alumni 
giving. "Results are not in from David- 
son and Wake Forest yet," said Tolley, 
"but I feel Elon has a strong chance of 
becoming first in the state in alumni 

"This was a great year of achieve- 
ment for Elon College," he said. "In 
order for us to meet our challenge, 
however, we need to collect monies on 
all of our 5,584 pledges. 

"1 am pleased with the dedication 
and support of Elon alumni," added 
Tolley. "Two years ago Elon ranked 
near the bottom in the state with only 
15% of its alumni making an annual 
gift. For 1983-84, the percentage of 
participation was 30%, and this year 
looks even better." 

The Phonathon, an annual winter 
event at Elon, raises money for the 
Annual Fund, which helps to pay for 
general operadng expenses. By offset- 
ting the rising costs of day-to-day 
operations, donations to the Annual 
Fund also help to keep tuition costs 

The race in the Greek Phonathon 
alumni participation challenge is going 
to be close!! As of this writing. Kappa 
Sigma and Zeta Tau Alpha have 
marginal leads. All other Greek 
organizations are closing in on the 
front runners, 

"As of May I, 1985, the college has 
received 4,300 alumni gifts, as com- 
pared to 3,300 at the same time last 
year," said Tolley, "There is still one 
month left for us to collect outstan- 
ding gifts, as we will close our books 
on May 31," he added. 

"I would like to thank every alum- 
nus who has made a contribution to 
this very special and important fund," 
said Tolley. "Elon has one of the 
highest percentages in the state in 
alumni giving, and we want everybody 
to know about it."

Parham Named 
Assistant AD 

Tom Parham has been named assistant 
athletic director and tennis coach at 
Elon College, athletic director Dr. 
Alan White recently announced. 

Parham will succeed Danny Mor- 
rison, who accepted a position with 
Wofford College as Fulltime athletic 

Besides his coaching and admin- 
istrative work, Parham will also be a 
member of the Physical Education 
Department staff as a teacher. Parham. 
44, comes from Atlantic Christian Col- 
lege, where he has been involved with 
athletic administration, teaching and 

Tom Parham 

Parham has been chosen the 
Carolinas Conference or NAIA 
District 26 Coach of the Year a record 
19 times and was the first coach ever 
selected National Coach of the year 
twice, those honors coming in 1977 
and 1979. 

Parham's tennis teams at Atlantic 
Christian won two national champion- 
ships in 1979 and again last year. 
Through the years, his teams have 
compiled 16 straight winning seasons 
as well. 

Parham graduated from Atlantic 
Christian in 1963 with a B.S. in 
English and physical education and a 
minor in history. He received his 
M.Ed, from the University of North 
Carolina in 1964. 

Hassard Named 



Clay Hassard of Charlotte, N.C., a 
senior offensive tackle for the Fighiin' 
Christian football team, was named to 
the NAIA Academic All-America team 
for 1984. Hassard has a cumulative 
3.24 grade point average in business 
administration. He had previously 
been named to the All-South Atlantic 
Conference team for Elon. 

Hassard is one of only four players 

chosen for the Academic All-America 
team. Twenty-five Elon athletes were 
named to the Dean's List for the fall 
semester at Elon College. 

"We are very proud of Clay," said 
head coach Macky Carden. "It is just 
great when a player achieves excellence 
on the field and in the classroom. This 
is the kind of thing that makes you 
appreciate the student-athlete." 

Fall Recruits 
Bolster Elon 

Even head coach Macky Carden, a 
decidedly low-key individual, seems ex- 
cited about the quality of recruits and 
transfers for Elon and Fighting Chris- 
tian football next fall. 

"We have a banner year," said 
Carden in releasing all Elon recruits 
to date, including transfers. "We've sign- 
ed 35 kids so far, 26 of them freshmen, 
and we'll probably sign four or five 
more freshmen." 

Heading the list of stellar recruits i> 
transfer Perry Cuda, 6-1, 190 pound 
former Alabama quarterback. Cuda 
was recruited by the late Bear Bryant 
in his final year at Alabama, was red- 
shirted in 1982, saw some action in 
1983 when he led the Crimson Tide to

After a back injury and some per- 
sonal difficulties with the Alabama 
quarterback coach, Cuda transferred 
to South Carolina last year, but had 
academic problems and dropped out of 
school. In the meantime he had back 
surgery which was deemed successful. 

Despite Cuda's acknowledged talent, 
Carden is adopting a wait-and-see at- 
titude toward the starting quarterback 

"We've got four good quarterbacks 
in Garrett Robinson, Mike Brodowicz, 
Craig Taylor, and Gary Minson," said 
Carden. "Cuda has some catching up 
to do, and he'll have to beat out our 
returnees to win a starting job." 

Among the transfers are Donnie 
Donovant, a 6-8, 265-pound defensive 
tackle who was at Duke, and John 
Duffell, a 5-10,175-pound runningback 
who was at UNC. 

NAIA Area 

The Elon baseball team lost to 
Northern Kentucky 3-2 in the cham- 
pionship game of the NAIA Area 
Tournament in Bluefield, W. Va., 
Sunday, May 12. The Christians had 
defeated Northern Kentucky 13-9 in 
an earlier game. 

There is still a possibility that the 
Elon team will receive an ar-large bid 
to the NAIA Nationals in Idaho, Mav 
27-June I.

District Titles 

The Elon College baseball team 
wrapped up their first regular season 
under Coach Rick Jones with cham- 
pionships in Carolinas Conference and 
NAIA District 26 play. 

Jones has also been named Coach of 
the Year in both the conference and 
the district. - 

The team finished 33-5 overall, 22-3 
in District 26 and 15-3 in the con- 
ference. They entered the District 
Championship held at Greensboro's 

S ports 

War Memorial Stadium on May 3-4 as 
the top seed, scheduled to play fourth- 
seeded Atlantic Christian College in 
the opener. 

The winner of the District 26 tour- 
nament will advance to NAIA area 
finals in Bluefield, W. Va., May 17-18. 
The national championship tourna- 
ment is scheduled for May 27-June 1 
at Lewis Clark State College in 
Lewiston, Idaho. Should the team 
make it to that tournament, they 
would be the first from Elon to do so. 

Four players received post-season 
conference and district honors. 
Maurice "Mo" Morton. Jeff Neufang, 
John Driscoll, and Greg Harris were 
named to the All-Conference team. 
Morton, Driscoll, and Harris were 
cited for Ail-Districc honors.

Tennis, Golf 


The Elon golf team, coached by Bill 
Morningstar and led by senior Barry 
Pilson, had a fine season, finishing in 
second place in both conference and 
district tournaments. 

In the district tournament held at 
Campbell College April 14-16, the 
Christians were in second place going 
,nto the final round and after nine 
holes had captured the lead. Rain, 
however, forced the cancellation of the 
day's round, and scores were reverted 
to the previous day, leaving the team 
with a second place finish. 

The season's record was still good 
enough to make an alternate's bid to 
the NAIA National Championship 
tournament a possibility for the Elon 
team. The Christians won the national 
title in N82, 

Men's Tennis 

The Fighting Christian men's tennis 
team wrapped up their regular season 
with a fourth place finish in both 
district and conference tournaments. 

Players Jeff Hooks and Duane 
Johnson advanced to the semi-finals in 
doubles in the District tournament and 
were named to the All-District team. 

Coached by Steve Rickard, filling in 
for Danny Morrison, who resigned to 
accept a post at Wofford College, the 
team finished with a respectable 12-4-1 
record for the season. 

Women's Tennis 

Coach Karen Garden's women's 
tennis team placed fourth in the 
Carolinas Conference tournament and 
tied for fifth in the District 26 playoff. 

The doubles teairi of Cindy Wall 
and Missy Jones placed second in the 
third flight of District tournament 
doubles play. 

The team's overall record for the 
season was 9-7. They were 4-3 in con- 
ference play and 6-5 in the district.

suffering and terror of 
World War I

Those who fought in World War I 
^re indeed living relics, and Terrell is 
one of the oldest veterans in Alamance 

Though he'll be 89 years old this 
month, many exact dates and details 
about his Army days are still clear as 
fresh water. Few war memories are 
murky to the former principal, school 
superintendent, Elon College alumni 
director and soldier. 

With coaxing, he puts on his rusty 
old green Army helmet. "Does it look 
silly?" he asks, mildly embarrassed. 
Then he sits for the young photo- 
grapher with proud dignity, holding 
his olive green battle blouse in front of 
his chest. It's so old it is about to fall 

There's a box of memorabilia: aerial 
photographs of landscapes pockmarked 
by shelling; pictures of ships he sailed 
on; a huge canvas map showing troop 
movements in Belgium. Several "con- 
fidential" manuals. Two old rolled 

Decades before the hearing aid and 
slight limp, long before his days in 
education, a 21-year-oid Terrell was 
working in a west Burlington hosiery 

America called; the first world war 
had begun. "There wasn't much 
""hoice," Terrell recalls, eyes sparkling 
behind his glasses. "I was subject to 
the draft. Instead of waiting for it I 
cook the realistic view. 1 felt I would 
be in one way or another." 

He also remembers the "patriotic fer- 
vor was'at a high level. We felt we 
had to go." 

One easy date for the Cedar Grove 
native to remember is May 26, 1917, 
when he joined the 120th Infantry 
unit under Capt. Don E. Scott of 
Graham. Scott later became a general 
before leaving duty. 

The Alamance County company 
headquarters was on the third floor of 
the Moser-McDonald Building, he 

Though he didn't have any musical 
experience. Terrell was recruited to 
play the alto horn in the infantry 
band. "The bass horn goes BOOM 
and the alto goes poof," he chuckles. "I 
wasn't much of a musician." 

Few of the band members could read 
sheet music. They practiced by 
parading up and down the streets of 
Graham. "Peoples ears are still bur- 
tin '," Terrell laughs. 

That September the 120th was sent 
to Camp Sevier in Greenville, 
S.C., to join the "Old Hickory" 
30th Division for training. Terrell also 
spent time in Company M in Durham 
where he was selected for army in- 
telligence as part of a team of 

Terrell was shipped out to England 
and by June 1918, he joined the 30th 
Divisional Headquarters in Calais, 
France, That July, he began observa- 
tion work in Ypres, Belgium. By 
August he was promoted to corporal. 

Terrell's job was to report enemy ac- 
tivity, including troop movements, 
planes or balloons during the day or 
signal lights at night. Observers set up 
posts in trenches or abandoned French 

The first night they were assigned to 
a British unit in Ypres for observation 
duty, they saw the British soldier in 
charge of the carrier pigeons get killed. 
Ypres was shelled heavily throughout 
the remainder of the war, he notes. 

The 30th Division later took part in 
the most decisive operation of the war, 
the Sept. 29, 1918, assault on the 
Hindenburg Line. Until the Allies 
broke through, the Germans con- 
sidered it impregnable. 

Terrell's strongest memories of the 
war came from that day when troops, 
tanks, and artillery rallied to the 

He clearly recalls "the terrible 
slaughter chat day," he said. "I saw 
many of my former buddies in Com- 
pany M pretty well shot up." 

"It was tetrible seeing not only our 
wounded come back but the German 
prisoners who were also wounded," he 
continued. "When you reflect on it, it 
was the worst part of the war." 

From that day on, the Allies ad- 
vanced under withering fire from 
German machine-gunners cover- 
ing their troops' retreat. 

"They're supposed to stick with the 
machine guns until they died," he add- 
ed. "Those gunners were something 

The 30th Division soon saw con- 
tinued action during the Battle of 
Montbrehain and the Battle of La 
Selle River. 

Some days they trudged along with 
the battle units or rode bicycles, 
burdened with telescopes, maps and 
field glasses, and .45-caliber handguns. 

"So far as 1 know, I never killed 
anyone," he says, with a hint of pride, 
"I hope I never did." 

But he admits being afraid. "Oh 
yes," he says, nodding. "You always 
felt you were in a situation where 
anything could happen."

During war. the enemy is usually 
perceived as inhuman- But Terrell 
discovered otherwise when he guarded 
some German prisoners. 

"Most of them could speak English. 
They didn't want war anymore than 
we did," he remembers. "No country 
wanted it. Most of the people didn't 
want war. But there was no way to 
help it." 

He paused peering out the window

would be too smart."

The war ended April 8. 1919, for 
Terrell when he was discharged 
at Camp Jackson, S.C. He 
returned to the hosiery mill and later 
entered Elon College, graduating in 
1925 to become principal of a Gaston 
County high school. 

By the time World War 11 again em- 
broiled the globe in conflict, he was 
principal of Elon High School, where 
he met his second wife. By the end of 
the "Big One," he was superintendent 
of Wadesboro City Schools and later 
of Warren County Schools. 

He then came to Elon College as 
ditector of alumni affairs and after 
retirement was appointed a magistrate, 
serving at the Burlington Police stat- 
ion for five years. He also served as a 
small claims court judge for three 
years until 1976.

Elon^s Mother Superior 

For more than a quarter of 
a cenojrv, Emma Lewis' 
door — and heart — has been 
open to confused or discouraged 
students seeking answers to their ques- 
tions and solutions to their problems. 
During that time, a generation of Elon 
students discovered they could turn to 
her to find the loving, caring advice 
they sought. 

In her quiet, low-key way, the 
slender lady, now graying and showing 
only slight effects from a bad fall 
several years ago, has given them the 
help — the big smile — they needed. 

It might have been only a matter of 
straightening out a mixed-up schedule. 
It might have been simply checking on 
.m income tax return. It could have 
been helping a student find a campus 
job, or it might have been locating 
scholarship funds for a distressed stu- 
dent in need of financial aid. Or it 
could have been just the act of patting 
someone on the shoulder and offering 
(hem a few well-chosen words of cheer. 

Whatever — and there were limes 
when the wisdom of a "Dear Abby" 
was required — Emma Lewis has loved 
every moment of those years she's 
spent at Elon looking after her 
"children." The frequency with which 
alumni, back on campus, come by to 
exchange greetings is proof enough 
that these "children" remember and 
are grateful for the help and advice she 
offered them years ago. 

Remembered David Vaughn, a 
former student and friend: "She always 
was effective, pleasant and encouraging 
in her relationships with students. She 
always had the time to listen to a stu- 
dent's problems. And she knew how 
to get something done. If she couldn't 
do it herself, she knew where to go to 
get it done. 

"A lot of students may not have 
known her by name, but they knew 
her by sight — her office was in 
Alamance Building at the time — and 
they felt free to call upon her. 

"She was very much a people- 
oriented person. She .thrived on con- 
tact with people. I would say she was a 
very effective ambassador for the col- 

That spirit of interest and caring 
which leaves such an indelible 
impression upon young people 
still is there as Mrs. Lewis approaches 
retirement. If her target date holds up, 
she'll be closing her desk in the Office 
of Development on September 30, 
1985 to join her husband, Charles 
Lewis, who is scheduled for retirement 
from Burlington Industries on the same 
day. There is a possibility that Mrs. 
Lewis may stick around another week 
to make it an even 27 years at Elon. 
She and her husband both have timed

to a generation, plans to retire

their retirements for the moment when 
annual reports and fiscal years are 
behind them. She has no definite 
plans for retirement. "The first six 
months," she said, "I'll spend cleaning 
out my house from the basement up. 
After that's done, then I'll be ready to 
think about something else." 

In her years at Elon, Mrs. Lewis has 
watched thousands of students come 
and go. And time, she has observed, 
has brought notable changes tn the 
make-up of Elon's student body, in its 
faculty and in the nature of the cam- 
pus atmosphere. She was witness to 
the unrest of the Vietnam years, to 
the breaking of new ground with in- 
tegration on campus and to the 
dramatic shift in attitudes that marks 
today's student. Elon weathered the 
many crises well, she said. 

"During those early years of the 
1960's, there were a lot of desperate 
boys on campus because of the Viet- 
nam war," said Mrs. Lewis. There 
were also a lot of night school 
students, veterans on the GI bill. Then 
came the unrest of the late '60's and 

"Elon was fortunate," Mrs. Lewis 
noted. "We had only a minimum of 
disturbance." Tbat she credits, in large 
part, to the "firm hand" of Dr. J. Earl 
Danieley, Elon's president. 

Since the uncertainty of those days, 
she's witnessed students make a 
"180-degree turn in their attitudes." 
She watched integration work to the 
point that a black was elected presi- 
dent of a student body that not too 
many years before was completely 

She has seen requirements for both 
students and faculty strengthened, and 
she has seen changes in the nature of 
the college's mission and in its connec- 
tions with the church. 

Smce I'^y Emma Lewis has been 
assigned to the Office of 
Development located in the 
Powell Administration Building. She 
has missed the direct contact with 
students that she once had because the 
Powell Building is off their beaten 

"For years I was in The Alamance 
Building where students passed all the 
time. My door was never closed and 
students were dropping in all along. It 
isn't that way now because the 
Development Office is out of the area 
where students circulate," she said. 

Along the way, Mrs. Lewis once was 
responsible for all the duplicating done 
by the college, including faculty and 

A clasiic Emma Lcu'(.s pose: listening to a sttident. 

"I really was popular in those days." 
she said with a laugh, "because I had 
copies of all the exams." 

Mrs. Lewis also served as secretary 
to the faculty in the days when she 
was doing the duplicating job. 

For the last several years, she has 
carried the title of Records and 
Research secretary. Her job has been 
to research and establish records for 
the alumni association, for en- 
dowments, and for scholarships. 

"There was a need for more com- 
plete scholarship and endowment 
records when I came in here," she 
said. "I went back and checked all the 
files, I read folders of all the college's 
presidents and 1 talked to people in an 
effort to get additional information," 
she said. Today, Elon has files for all 
those things. 

Mrs.. Lewis, a native of Dunn, 
N.C., and the youngest of five 
sisters, attended the University 
of North Carolina at Greensboro and 
took the secretarial course offered 
there. (It was known as Woman's Col- 
lege then.) She went to work for Burl- 
ington Mills in the Burlington 
transportation office in 1940, met her 
husband-to-be there and was married 
in January 1942. Six months later, her 
husband was called into service and 
she went to Wilmington to live with a 
sister and work in the personnel 
department of the North Carolina 
Shipbuilding Company. They returned 

to Burlington, January 1, 1946. TTien, 
following the birth of children Jane 
and John, she went to work on a part- 
time basis for Dr. Robert Benson, then 
dean of students, in 1958. 

That, of course, led to a ftill-time 

Of all the people Mrs. Lewis has en- 
countered at Elon, the fondest 
memories are of Dr. A.L. Hook — as 
they are for many others who have at- 
tended and worked at Elon. 

"Fessor Hook certainly left him im- 
print upon Elon," she said. "He loved 
the school. Alumni always looked for 
him when they came back. His loss 
was a tremendous blow, both in the 
strength of his own personality and in 
the ties he represented for those 
generations which he knew in the span 
of the years he was here." 

-The college annual of 19?0 was 
dedicated to Emma Lewis. 

"In recognition and appreciation of 
an individual's service to Elon, the Phi 
Psi Cli editors have set aside this page. 
The award is made in tribute to one 
who has made an exceptional effort in 
promoting understanding, good will 
and knowledge,.. in furthering the goals 
of Elon College." 

It was a fine tribute in 1970, and 
still is today. Emma Lewis will be miss- 
ed when she retires.

Second Powell 
Professorship If 

A new endowed professorship has 
been established at Elon College, and 
Dr. John Sullivan has been named to 
the position. 

The Maude Sharpe Povveti Professor- 
ship was endowed by gifts from Dr. 
Thomas E. Powell, III, John S. Powell, 
J.D., and Dr. James B. Powell in 
memory of their mother, the late 
Maude Sharpe Powell, a 1921 graduate 
of the college. It is the second Powell 
professorship at Elon. The Thomas E. 
Powell, Jr. Professorship, currently held 
by Dr. J. Earl Danieley. was established 
in 1978 by gifts from Dr. Powell, Jr. 
and members of his family. 

In establishing the new professorship, 
the brothers are also honoring their 
uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. J. Hin- 
ton Rouncree. Mrs. Rountree. the 
former Clara ("Joni") Sharpe, is the 
lister of Maude Sharpe Powell. Mr. 
Rountree has been an influential 
member of the college's Board of 
Trustees since 1955 and served for 
manv years as chairman of the Finan- 

Dr. John Sullivan 

cial Affairs Committee. Both were 
graduated from Elon, he in 1933 and 
she in I93I. 

"We are once again indebted to the 
Powell family for their generosity, vi- 
sion and commitment," said Dr. Fred 
Young, president of Elon, in announc- 
ing the professorship. "In continuing 
the tradition of leadership, service and 
philanthropy begun by their father and 
mother, they ensure vitality and quail' 
ty for this institution." 

A native of Bellemont in Alamance 
County, Sophia Maude Sharpe was a 
noted chemistry scholar and athlete 
while a student at Elon. After her 
marriage to Dr. Powell, Jr.. she was a 
resident of the Town of Elon College 
for more than 20 years before her un- 
timely death in September, 1944. A 
leader in religious, civic and social ac- 
tivities, she particularly enjoyed her

Dr. John Sullivan, professor of 
philosophy at Elon since 1970, has 
been selected by the college as the first 
to hold the Maude Sharpe Powell 

"Dr. Sullivan's credentials are impec- 
cable," said Dr. Young in announcing 
the appointment. "As a scholar, 
thinker, and leader, he is superb. 
However, the primary factor in his 
selection was his effectiveness as a 
teacher. Willingly assuming the role of 
mentor, counselor and friend to his 
students, he exemplifies the ideal for a 
liberal arts institution." 

Dr. Sullivan is a graduate of Catholic 
University, from which he earned both 
the B.A- and M.A. degrees. He also 
holds a J.C.D. degree from Lateran 
University in Rome, Italy, and a Ph.D. 
from the University of North Carolina 
at Chapel Hill. In 1976-77 he was Lilly 
Scholar in the Humanities at Duke 
University. In 1980 he was awarded the 
Daniels-Danieley Award for Excellence 
in Teaching at Elon. 

A noted speaker and lecturer, Dr. 
Sullivan has given over 60 talks, 
workshops and other public presenta- 
tions throughout North Carolina and 
in other states. He has also acted as 
consultant for the National Endow- 
ment for the Humanities (NEH). the 
N.C. Humanities Committee, the N.C. 
Nurses Association, the UNC-C 
Department of Education and the 
Traditional Acupuncture Institute of 
Columbia, Maryland, 

He is the editor of The Storied World: 
A Medieval Reader, which was written 
as a part of the NEH Measure of Man 
project. He is also the author of two 
essays in Schoob and Meanings; Essays 
on the Mora/ Nacure of Schooling, edited 
by David Putpcl and H. Svi Shapiro 
and published in 1984 by University 
Press of America. 

Study Abroad 
Expands to Full 

By Meredith Lee *86 

Beginning this fall, Elon College 
students will have the opportunity to 
live and study abroad for an entire 
semester. Through the Study Abroad 
Program, the fall semester 1985, begin- 
ning August 19 and ending December 
16, will be spent in England. 

"This is the 18th year of Elon's 
Winter Term Abroad Program." said Dr. 
Bill Rich, Coordinator of the Study 
Abroad Program. "We see the fall 
semester as expanding the opportunity 
for students to study abroad." 

Elon is working in conjunction with 
the Guilford College Study Abroad 
Program to provide an educational ex- 
perience for 19 Elon students and 38 
Guilford students. The program is 
designed to tap the artistic, historical. 
political, cultural as well as educational 
resources in London. It is offered for 
the regular cost of tuition, room and 
board, plus airfare. 

Upon arriving in London, the 
students will begin their cultural ex- 
perience with a five-day orientation to 
the city. Classes will begin the follow- 
ing Monday. August 26, at the London 
headquarters of the Friend's Society in 
the center of the city. 

Students may enroll for 12 to 16 
credit hours. Courses will be offered in 
fine arts, political science, English, 
philosophy, and history — all centered 
around British culture. 

The courses will be taught by faculty 
members of the Courtald Institute. 
London Polytechnic, University of Lon- 
don, Guilford College, Eastman's 
Polytechnic. Wellcome Institute and 
Elon College. 

Under the leadership of Elon pro- 
fessor Will Migniuolo and Guilford 
professor Martha Cooley, the students 
will reside in the Hotel Edward and 

the Edward Apartments, near Hyde 
Park. Classes will be held four days a 
week providing three-day weekends. A 
two-week fall break is scheduled for 
October 11-27 to allow time for travel 
to the continent. 

Rich said that his office has already 
begun to recruit students for the fall of 
'86. Students are accepted into the pro- 
gram if they have a sound grade point 
average and recommendation from a= 
faculty member. 

Waller Receives 
Faculty Award 

"Teaching is the art of assisting 
diicovery'—Mark van Dorcn 

An inquiring mind, a thirst for 
truth, a respect for others— these are 
the methods Dr, Bruce Waller, assistant 
professor of philosophy, carries into the 
classroom and the methods that earned 
for him the 1984-85 Daniels-Danieley 
Award for Excellence in leaching. 
Elon's most coveted award for faculty. 

"His aim is always to share the 
knowledge and to encourage true learn 
ing," wrote one of Waller's students in 
nominating him for the award. 

A colleague wrote, "Ever seeking to 
involve students in spirited discussion, 
he . . . displays the courage to follow 
arguments wherever they may lead." 

Waller agrees that discussion suits his 
purposes best. "I am not so much con- 
cerned that the students who take my 
classes leave with a formed philosophy." 
he says. "1 would prefei that they leave 
feeling less certain of what they 

"1 hope the class will make them 
think more carefully and critically 
about their beliefs, will make them 
question whether their beliefs form a 
coherent and consistent set." 

The classroom, in Waller's view, is "a 
good time to practice thinking." Hence, 
he uses discussion freely. 

"I also find it worthwhile to listen to 
what the students have to say," he 
adds. "Very often they take angles on 
things that I hadn't seen before. They 
bring a different perspective." 

Waller is a graduate of Louisiana 
Technical University. He received his 
master's and Ph.D. degrees in 
philosophy from the University of 
North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has 
taught at Elon since 1978 and current- 
ly serves as chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Philosophy. 

Waller retains an avid interest in 
research and writing. He has had 
several articles published in scholarly 
journals and is currently working on 
another, which, he says, is basically a 
defense of the logical-positivist ap- 
proach to ethics. 

Waller is the thirteenth recipient of 
the Daniels-Danieley Award, which was 
established by Dr. J. Earl Danieley and 
his wife, Verona Daniels Danieley, in 
honor of their parents.

On Saturday evening, June 1, about 
30 alumni gathered for a party at the 
Green Valley Golf and Country Club 
in Fayetteville, North Carolina. This 
was the first alumni social held in this 
area in nearly a decade and repre- 
sented the first step in re-establishing a 
viable chapter to serve this part of the 

Several guests at this social were con- 
temporaries who were pleasantly sur- 
prised to greet classmates they had not 
seen since their days at Elon. The 
group enjoyed a variety of "munchies" 
and danced on the terrace overlooking 
the 18th fairway to music provided by 
J disc jockey. 

This social was organized by Cooper 
Mattocks '79 and promoted by several 
other local alumni. Plans are being 
made to sponsor an informal get- 
together later this year. 

Other Summer Socials 

At prcsstime the Suffolk and 
Virginia Beach chapters of the Elon 
College Alumni Association had filed 
plans to co-sponsor a social at the Suf- 
folk Swimming Pool in Suffolk on 
Saturday evening, August 3. Suffolk

Dr. John D. Messick '22 looks 
back on his long and distinguished 
career as an educator 

By Moses Crutchfield 

In the late hXiO's and early l'-''40's 
when the main concern at Elon 
College was the ongoing fight for its 
financial life, one man was busy con- 
centrating on preserving and enhancing 
academic standards, making certain 
that the vineyards of learning planted 
by the college's founders did not 
wither and die. 

Ultimatelvi according to history's 
ludgment, he achieved that goal, even 
surpassed it, Elon emerged from its 
financial tribulations with its academic 
standards intact. The groundwork was 
m place for the college to begin, when 
the time was propitious, a period of 
enormous growth, physically and 

The man whose work influenced 
Elon's future as a place of learning so 
greatly was Dr. John Decatur Messick, 
dean of his alma mater from 1935 until 
1944. His service during those perilous 
times that encompassed the end of the 
Great Depression and the outbreak of 
NVorld War 11 was a labor of love by his 
own words. 

As testimony to his abilities as an 
educator. Dr. Messick later served a 
much larger institution as president for 
13 years, was chairman of a highly im- 
portant national collegiate committee 
and then capped a distinguished career 
in the field of higher education by 
planning and overseeing installation of 
the curriculum at one of America's 
unique universities. His record and 
achievements in education stand vir- 
tually alone among the list of Elon 
graduates who have chosen that field 
for a career. 

Today, at age 87, Dr. Messick, by 
choice, lives alone in a two-bedroom 
apartment on the fringes of the Cape 
Fear Country Club golf course in 
Wilmington. His wife, the former 
Magdalene Robinson, died several years 
ago. Typical of his spirit of in- 
dependence, he prefers his own 
residence to homes of his children. A 
daughter, Helen Margaret Willets (Mrs. 
Frederick), and son, John Messick, 
both live in Wilmington. Another 
daughter, Rose Melvin, (Mrs. Julius 
Lyman Melvin, Jr.), lives in Raleigh 
and another son, Norval, in San Fran- 
ciso. A third son, a handicapped child, 
died in his teens. 

Dr. Messick retains much of the erect 
and imposing bearing that was 
characteristic of him in younger days. 
In recent years, though, health pro- 
blems have arisen. A detached retina 
cost sight in one eye. A year ago a 
congestive heart condition slowed his 
pace considerably. However, he siill 
moves reasonably spritely and con- 
tinues to drive his own car during 

daylight hours. The sharp, dry wit th,M 
one remembers from other days 
manifests itself from time to time at- 
testing to his alertness. 

In retrospect, Dr. Messick's respon- 
sibilities at Elon probably helped 
prepare him for greater ones later at 
what IS now East Carolina University 
and at Oral Roberts University. 

"Dr. (L.E.) Smith, Elon's president 
then, left the curriculum to me," said 
Dr. Messick. "I worked with each 
department separately, giving each man 
an opportunity to present his own 
ideas. After thorough evaluation, the 
ideas, if good enough, would be 
presented to the faculty which approv- 
ed or rejected them. In this way we im- 
proved the curriculum. Most of the 
courses of study were good when 1 
came to Elon but we made improve- 
ment a continuing process." 

Dr. Messick commented, "We had a 
good faculty when I was at Elon. We 
had more than our share of doctorates. 
It was a strong faculty." 

And, continuing. "Professor (A.L.) 
Hook served as dean before I went to 
Elon. He moved over to the office of 
registrar when 1 came. What his feel- 
ings were, 1 don't know, but there was 
never a cross word between the two of 
us. He certainly was one of the finest 
people I've ever known." 

Dr. Messick tells the story of how he 
got back to Elon as a member of the 
faculty at the college he was graduated 
from in 1922 at the age of 25; 

"In the summer of 1934, I was 
teaching at the Northern Presbyterian 
College in Asheville. Meanwhile, 1 wa^ 
looking for a college position. 1 had 
heard of one in Florida and 1 visited 
there one weekend. They liked me and 
I liked them and I accepted an associ- 
ate professorship to begin in the fall. 
"When I returned to Asheville, 1 
found a letter from Dr. Smith re- 
questing that I meet him in a hotel in 
Salisbury the next Saturday afternoon. 
which I did. The job that was open 
was that of dean. When I arrived in 
Salisbury, Mrs. Smith was with her 
husband and we talked together for a 
while. Then she smiled broadly and ex- 
cused herself so Dr. Smith and 1 could 
talk alone. Later, she told me the smile 
was to let Dr. Smith know that she ap- 
proved. She was a great gal! 

"Inasmuch as I was a graduate of 
Elon, the job was special to me. We 
were happy there. I loved Elon then 
and still do. I regarded the job of 
academic dean as a challenge." 

That, quite possibly, was the reason 
Dr. Messick settled upon the Elon job 
when he might have sought and 
secured other positions that were 
higher in prestige and paid more than 

the $3,500 annual salary. After 
finishing at Elon, Dr. Messick did sum- 
mer school work at UNC— Chapel 
Hill, Columbia and finally New York 
University where he received his doc- 
torate in education in 1934. At NYU, 
he chalked up all "A" grades and 
received a letter stating that he was 
one of the best graduate students they 
had ever had. At that time. 31,000 
students were enrolled in the universi- 
ty. Later on, Dr. Messick was president 
of the NYU Alumni Association. 

Dr. Messick came to Elon as a stu- 
dent from Aurora in the eastern part 
of the state because at the time he 
wanted to become a minister. In thum- 
bing through college magazines, he 
came across one on Elon, liked what 
he saw, arranged a conference with Dr. 
W.A. Harper, then president, and "lov- 
ed him." 

"The first year at Elon I took New

from the chairman of the department, 
Dr. 0-U.) Newman, probably as good a 
teacher as I ever knew," he noted. 

When Dr. Messick left Elon in 
1944 to become dean at New 
Jersey State Teachers college in Mont- 
clair. N.J., a situation was brewing at 
East Carolina Teachers College in 
Greenville that eventually would bring 
his return to his native state. East 
Carolina, once mainly a teachers col- 
lege for women, was experiencing all 
kinds of problems, including a financial 
scandal. Several educators were given a 
shot at straightening out the situation 
but none fully succeeded. Finally, 
when Dr. Dennis Cooke, a former 
president at High Point College, who 
had made some strides, gave up, Dr. 
Messick was called upon to take the 
job. He accepted and left Montclair,

places of learning 
in the state...." 

taking with him a former Marine, Leo 
Jenkins, who became his dean at East 
Carolina, Jenkins later succeeded 
Messick as president. 

There is no question but what Dr. 
Messick laid out the course for East 
Carolina's emergence as a full-fledged 
university, complete with a four-year 
medical school. True, it was Dr. Jenkins 
who later aligned the political forces 
and battled the legislature for establish- 
ment of the medical school, but it was 
Dr. Messick who did the preliminary 
work. He was the first to envision a 
two-year medical school as a possibility, 
for example. 

As early as 1953, he was telling the 
legislature that East Carolina should be 
permitted to assume the proportions of 
a university. He did succeed in getting 
the name changed from East Carolina 
Teachers College to East Carolina Col- 
lege. For the first time, master's degrees 
were offered in the liberal arts program. 
The basic science program was 
strengthened, and a huge e.xtension 
service was instituted with special at- 
tention to the Cherry Point and Camp 
Lejeune Marine bases. Eventually, the 
off-campus program included 22 

Admission standards were advanced 
during Dr. Messick's tenure and enroll- 
ment soared from 1,600 students to 
6,500 in 13 years. The college became 
the first in the southeast to offer 
courses via commercial television. Dr. 
Messick, incidentally, was in the 
forefront of those participating in the 
successful effort to get Voice of 
America transmitters located in 

Obstacles frequently popped up to 
hinder Dr. Messick's efforts to bring 
adequate facilities to the East Carolina 
campus. For, example, early-on he was 
able to get funds for a new library. 
That was fine, but, because of the war, 
no structural steel was available on the 
market. After Gov. Kerr Scott and his 
administrative assistant D.S. Coltrane, 
were unable to do anything about the 
situation, Dr. Messick approached an 
acquaintance and friend in high 
government circles. The result was East 
Carolina's first new building under Dr. 

Getting money out of the legislature 
frequently was a hassle, too. On one 
occasion, Dr. Messick sent several pret- 
ty co-eds to Raleigh, armed with 
baskets of camellia blooms to pin on 
the lapels of legislators, hoping they 
would give favorable attention to bills 
affecting East Carolina. 

"It took a lot of fighting and much 
persuasion to get appropriations for im- 
provements to the campus." he remark- 
ed. Yet, as the college grew, he con- 
tinued to add new dormitories and 
other buildings to the college's 

Eventually, the legislative battles 
took their toll. Saying he was, "Tired 
of being tired," Dr. Messick handed in 
his resignation effective in early 1960. 
His work and his leadership were 
saluted by the press and by powerful 
political figures, but to him, the most 
touching, meaningful tribute came from 
the East Carolina student newspaper: 

"By pouring himself heart and soul 
Into his work, he built a little teachers 
college into one of the finest places of 
learning in the state. . .he is great be- 
cause he cared." 

In 1981, the university dedicated an 
enlarged and refurbished theater arts 
center "to one of the most dynamic 
and colorful leaders in the institution's 
74-vear histoty." 

While at East Carolina, Dr. Messick 
came to know S. Lee Braxton, mayor 
of the nearby town of Whiteville and 
chairman of the board of First Na- 
tional Bank there. That acquain- 
tanceship led to a series of happenings 
that capped the career of Dr. Messick 
as an educator. 

After leaving East Carolina, Dr. 
Messick worked briefly with the 
U.S. Office o( Education, supervising 
its activities in the southeastern states. 
Then, he was persuaded to go to work 
for Congress as a research specialist. 
From there, he came out of retirement 
to serve as dean of instruction at Ver- 
mont State College, where he was 
handed the assignment of revising the 
college's curriculum. 

Meanwhile, Braxton, the former 
mayor, made his fortune and joined up 
as an associate of Evangelist Oral 
Roberts. When Roberts decided to 
found and build his university in 
Tulsa, one of his needs was for a per- 
son with expert knowledge of a univer- 
sity's curriculum and of how buildings 
should be planned for greatest efficien- 
cy in teaching. Braxton thought im- 
mediately of his old friend. Dr. 

For a while, Dr. Messick served as 
consultant and retained his position at 
Vermont State, but in July 1963 he 
joined Oral Roberts as dean and ex- 
ecutive vice president of a university 
that at the moment was little more 
than a dream. It was here that Dr. 
Messick did what he calls his "most 
creative work." 

His responsibilities included develop- 
ing the curricula, composing the col- 
lege catalog and faculty handbook, set- 
ting standards for student admission 
and devising various bulletins. He in- 
terviewed and recommended faculty 
and personnel employment and advis- 
ed with the architects on the appoint- 
ments of various buildings. 

Dr. Messick reached deep into his 
years of experience to make the univer- 
sity one of the country's most-up-to- 
date in the way of curriculum and 
facilities. His experience as a member 
of the National Accreditation Commit- 
tee of the American Association of 
Colleges and Universities carried him 
onto campuses across the country. He 
gleaned the best of ideas from that ex- 
perience and combined them with 
others he had left over from his days 
as superintendent of the Spencer 
schools and as a principal at Trenton 
and South River. 

The result was the crown jewel of 
the Oral Roberts University campus, 
the John D. Messick Learning 
Resources Center. It's a unique six- 

story learning complex with a highly 
sophisticated information and retrieval 
system for both students and pro- 
fessors. It provides four-and-one-half 
acres of classroom, library, offices and 
other related facilities. One of Its 
features is an electronic projection 
system whereby a professor can call up 
or record whatever he desires. Lectures 
are on tape. Two electrical engineers 
were engaged to carry out Dr, 
Messick's ideas. The completed 
$IO-million building was called by the 
Ford Foundation "one of the most 
creative facilities on the American cam- 
pus today," 

From out of an experience at the 
age of 19, Dr. Messick developed 
a strong, life-long philosophy of 
religion. Thus, a conflict between his 
Intellectual and Roberts' fundamental 
approach to the spiritual might have 
been expected. 

"I see no contradiction in religion 
and intellectuality," said Dr. Messick. 
"Basically al! religious denominations 
believe in Christ. I know there is a 
heaven. I know there is a Christ. I 
never feel alone. I know that He is 
with me. If intellect puts those beliefs 
there, then what is the contradiction?" 

Dr. Messick tells the ston,- of how he 
once kidded Oral Roberts that if he 
(Roberts) would like to transfer to the 
Methodist Church without a 
ministerial degree, then "I might be 
able to get the conference to accept 
him. He took me up on it and today is 
a member of the largest Methodist 
church in Talsa, although he never 
changed his faith in action." 

Later Oral Roberts wrote: "We are so 
very grateful and we give God thanks 
for finding you at a very strategic time 
in the life of Oral Roberts Univetsity. 
Your contacts, your experience, your 
know-how and ability were the things 
that put us on the right track. You 
helped us lay a good foundation and 
our strong academic courses are due to 
your great strength." 

In retirement, Dr. Messick Is as ac- 
tive as health permits. He is a member 
of a number of organizations and earn- 
ed a national 10-year award for service 
to add to the many accorded him in 
his career. He is close to his children, 
grandchildren and great grandchildren. 
He is happy about Eton's growth and 
thinks that church-related colleges will 
survive and should be kept distinctive. 

Of his life, he says, "I don't know 
that I would do anything differently if 
it could be done over today." 

A key to that life might be found in 
a statement by Aristotle long ago: "All 
who have meditated on the art of 
governing mankind have been convinc- 
ed that the fate of empires depends on 
the education of youth."

The Year in 

Bv Alan Wooten '87 

Even without a national championship 
or the Jobv Hawn Cup. Elon made 
great strides in its athletic program 
during 1984-85 and the advances will 
continue to show next year. 


The biggest story of the year was the 
Elon baseball team. The Christians 
were picked to finish second in the 
conference and district races. With a 
never-say-dic attitude, the Christians 
romped through league opposition to 
the regular season Carolinas Con- 
ference and NAJA District 26 titles. 
They began tournament play by winn- 
ing the District 26 tourney and then 
finishing second in the Area VII tour- 
nament, after losing the first game of 
the double elimmation affair. 

Receiving an at-large berth into the 
NAIA National Championship Finals 
in Lewiston, Idaho, Elon finished 
seventh in the ten-team field. In the 
final poll by the NAIA the Christians 
were ranked fifth. Head Coach, Rick 
Jones, in his first year at Elon, led the 
team to a 40-10 record and was Coach 
of the Year in the conference and 
district. Many observers of Elon 
baseball over the years have called this 
the greatest team ever fielded. 

Maurice Morton, senior from 
Graham, N,C., set records for career 
runs (126), career hits (185), career 
stolen bases (113). and stolen bases in a 
season (58). Pitcher John Driscoll set a 
new career record at Elon with 26 
wins, breaking a 35-year-old record set 
by C.V. "Lefty" Briggs in the late 20s. 
Morton and junior Greg Harris were 
drafted by the San Diego Padres of the 
National League. 

In national tournament play, Elon 
opened by dropping a 6-1 decision to 
the College of St. Francis from Joliet, 
11. The Christians were the victims of 
four inning-ending doubleplays. 
Driscoll cook the loss while David 
Terry and Jerry Russell, two promising 
freshmen, had two hits each. 

On Tuesday, Elon returned to 
winning side of the ledger, pasting 
Southern Maine, 11-5. Elon jumped 
ahead lO-I and never looked back. Pete 
Gibson and Budgie Clark had three 
hits each and Troy Harris added two 
and three runs batted in. One of Har- 
ris' hits was a booming 400-foot 
homerun over the scoreboard in 
rightfield, Greg Harris notched the vic- 
tory, his ninth of the season. 

On Friday, Elon met with the big 
"E," elimination. Georgia College used 
a first-inning grand slam and a 
seventh-inning three-run homerun to 
put Elon away. Troy Harris added 
another homerun in rightfield and 
Russell drove in the other run with a 
double off the wall in leftfield. Greg 
McDannold, despite some good 
moments, took the loss on the mound. 

Elon head coach Rick Jones offered 
nothing but praise for his team. "We 
accomplished a lot of things out in 
Idaho. We proved we can play some 

good baseball against some of the 
finest teams in the country Our goal 
now is to try and rebuild our pitching 
staff and make the trip back to 
Lewiston next year." 

Elon also won a conference title in 
soccer and received its first All- 
American in the sport when Joe Nepay 
was named to the third team. Head 
coach Steve Ballard was named Coach 
of the Year in the conference and 
district while Nepay was Player of the 
Year. The team finished 11-7-1 and 
should contend for the conference and 
district titles this fall. 

Elon had another Player of the Year 
in the Winter when Robert Leak 
received the honor in basketball. Since 
then. Coach Bill Morningstar has done 
some excellent recruiting, including the 
signing of Warren Wallace from Clem- 
son, and Elon should field an excellent 
team next year. 

Elon won the NAIA District 26 foot- 
ball title in the fall. The Christians 
were unable to make the playoffs but 
finished 7-3 and were ranked 13th in 
the nation. Royce Fentress was the 
District Player of the Year and was 
drafted by the USFL Birmingham 
Stallions. Fentress was also a first team 
All-American and received Elon's 
highest athletic honor in the Basnight 


Elon's golf team also did well this 
year. Although failing to make the 
playoffs for the first time since 1975, 
the Christians were ranked in the top 
ten all year. Elon was the victim of 
fluke weather in the district tourna- 
ment and missed the trip to Phoenix 
by two strokes. Tom Martine and Barry 
Pilson were named to All-Conference 
and All-District teams. 

Win Awards 

The Elon College Sports Information 
Department under the direction of 

Steve Ballard and with the assistance 
of Alan Wooten, has received four na- 
tional awards during the past year. 

The NAIA Sports Information Direc- 
tors' Association named Elon's football 
program third best in the nation in 
Division 1 competition. It was the 
fourth time in five years the football 
program has been recognized in the top 
three in the nation. Elon's basketball 
program was also judged to be sixth 
best in Division 1 competition for 
basketball programs, the first time since 
1978-79 it has received an award. 

At the College Sports Infor- 
mation Directors' Association conven- 
tion, Elon received two more awards. 
The South Atlantic Conference 
(SAC-8) Media Guide was selected as 
the top program, while the football 
program for Elon was fifth. Elon served 
as the SAC-8 News Bureau for the past

USSR ~ you can get there from 


■ ■ r. David Crowe, professor of 
"-"^ history at Elon College, 
could be arrested for false advertising. 
He touts his yearly Russian expedition 
as a trip. It is not a trip, not in the or- 
dinary sense of that word; it is an 
adventure— pure adventure. Mr. 
Webster defines trip as making a 
journey. He defines adventure as an ex- 
citing and remarkable experience. Ac- 
tually, to be fair to both Dr. Crowe 
and Mr. Webster, the Russian offering 
could best be defined as an adven- 
turous trip. 

It is surely a journey. The 1985 group 
covered close to 20,000 miles in sixteen 
days, and journeyed back and forth 
through twelve time zones. There were 
days when we lived on time that was 
noon where we were but was midnight 
the day before at Elon College. Over 
this period of sixteen days we were in- 
volved in twelve to fouteen separate 
plane flights (depending on where one 
came from to get to New York), a 
36-hour train ride through Siberia into 
Mongolia, and a 24-hour ride back in- 
to Siberia, Those of us who dealt with 
constant time adjustments, dragging 
luggage that constantly seemed to gain 
weight (yes, Virginia, there are 
souvenirs galore in the USSR and 
Mongolia), and keeping up with planes, 
trains, and buses can attest to the fact 
that this was definitely a journey. 

On the other hand, it was definitely 
an adventure. Flying ^^0 miles into the 
Gobi Desert in a double prop plane 
that would land on a non-existent run- 
way is adventure. Being stranded on a 
broken bus in that same desert and 
finally being rescued by three mongols 
who happened by in a jeep and who 
repaired the bus with a safety-pin and 
wire is strict adventure. Hearing 
soldiers walking on top of and scraping 
underneath your train, and looking 
out of the window and seeing soldiers 
carrying Ml rifles and looking grim at 
the border crossings is adventure, So is 
a Tibetan Buddhist worship experience, 
an opera sung in Russian with a 
chorus of 84 and a house that is burn- 
ed on stage, children wanting chewing 
gum at every stop, and being stared at 
constantly by everyone (we felt, at 
times like the king who had no 
clothes). So this trip was also an 
adventure; truly an exciting and 
remarkable experience. 

Why docs one go to the Soviet 
Union and Outer Mongolia? Everyone 
knows that Outer Mongolia isn't real 
anyway. It is only a figment manufac- 
tured by those needing to threaten, 
such as, "If you don't shape up, I'm 
shipping you off to Outer Mongolia." 

Why deliberately leave the conve- 
niences of our society (I will never 
again take working plumbing and hot 
water for granted)? One reason is Dr. 
Crowe. Where else could a person find 
a leader that speaks fluent Russian, has 
taught the history of that country for 
years, and has made eleven trips into 
this rather formidable part of the 
world? His experience and expertise 
takes the trip out of the category of 
"tour" and places it into the category 
of "hands-on experience." What a 
bonus Dr. Crowe was! He had the uni- 
que talent of looking after the group 
without hovering, and of encouraging 
our own initiative and pardcipation. 

Oh the cities of this trip! Len- 
ingrad is beautiful with its 
waterways and its lovely cast iron rail- 
ings that stand watch along these 
waterways. The city stands as a monu- 
ment to man's struggles, having ex- 
perienced the Decemberist uprising, 
the terrorist activities of the 1880's, 
and the seige of the Second World 
War. It IS also a monument to man's 
love of the beautiful as preserved and 
exemplified in the Hermitage Art 
Museum, the Kirov Theatre, and St. 
Issac's Cathedral. 

Baku, a lovely sun-baked area border- 
ing the Caspian Sea, was pure culture 
shock after cold, over-cast, snowy Len- 
ingrad. Suddenly we were transported 
into a Mediterranean climate and 
society; firom the cool, reserved north 
to the warm relaxed south. It seemed 
strange that this belonged with the 
same country, and it was here that we 
began to grasp the size and diversity of 
the Soviet Union. We had a seven- 
course banquet, 14th-century style, 
complete with a rather strange, 
Turkish-sounding band that delighted 
in showing up periodically to play 
loudly as they stared at the ceiling and 
as we stared at them. Needless to say. 
it was wonderful then, but not quite so 
wonderful at 2 a.m. that same night 
when we assembled at the airport for 
our night flight to Asia and the town 
of Tashkent. 

Russian ballet is spellbinding. We 
watched Swan Lake being performed in 
this central Asian city and each scene 
seemed a Degas painting come alive. 
The theatre performances we saw were 
first-rate whether they were of ballet, 
opera, or folk music. Each city has a 
children's theatre, and the arts are 
presented to the people from the time 
of their childhood. TTiis is evident in 
the excellent attendance and attention 
at the perftir mantes. It must be added, 
however, that along with ballet, folk- 
tradition, and classics, rock is alive and 
well. It was an experience in 
schizophrenia when I awoke in the 



middle of the night on a train in the 450 miles into the Gobi Desert while 

wilds of Siberia only to hear John Len- listening to Jim Morrison. So much for 
non's "Let It Be," or sat having dinner suppression. The young will find a way. 

"A train is a train is a train. ..For 36 houn we rode through the Siberian coun- 
tryside toward and into Mongolia."

rkutsk is pure Doctor Zhivago. Rus 
sian, wooden, unpainted houses 
with ornatelv carved trim and shutters 
of what can best be described as 
'Williamsburg colors' It was to here 
that many Deccmberists were sent into 
exile and, because of this, became a 
19th century cultural center. It was 
here that we quietly observed a Rus- 
sian Orthodox ceremony in a small, 
ancient church. The shadows were 
alive with old women dressed in black 
scurrying from one altar to the next. 
Some good American Protestants and 
Catholics lit candles in this quiet, dif- 
ferent place and wished for a peaceful 
world that would fit this holiness. 

A train is a tram is a tram, and we 
experienced pure "train-ness." For 
36-hours we rode through the Siberian 
countryside toward, and into 
Mongolia. The Soviet Union is massive 
in size and much of it is forest and 
unspoiled wilderness; miles and miles 
and acres and acres of birch trees. 
Never again will 1 see birch trees 
without remembering the beauty of 
Russia and, most particularly, the 
Siberian countryside. 

Skirting around Lake Baikal, one of 
[he largest and certainly the deepest 
lake in the world, we entered Mongolia 
and came to Ulan Bator, h was a trip 
into National Geographic. What is 
Mongolia? It is school children wearing 
white aprons and large smiles and play- 
ing the same games that our children 
play. It is music everywhere, and play- 
ing and singing together. It is Mongol 
dresses with sashes and boots, and it is 
horses and sheep, and camels, and a 
Buddhist monastery with the orange- 
robed lamas and the turning prayer 
wheels. It is the Gobi Desert that is 
the paradox of cold American Coca- 
Cola and ageless mountains of such 
rugged beauty that you feel you have 
been where time began; the Gobi 
desert of ice so cold and so thick that 
you can walk between its floes and 
disappear into its cold whiteness before 
coming out on the other edge; the 
Gobi Desert of sand dunes and sheep 
herders on patient camels that allow 
themselves to be ridden by this 
busload of curious foreigners. Mongolia 
is wonderous and different and 
gracious, and is an adventure. It could 
never be relegated to the name "trip."

again, everywhere. Red Square is

welcome! We all look the same, though 
very tired, but we are not the same. 
We have taken a wonderous trip 

together, and we have seen things and 
experienced things that will always be 
a part of us now. We listen to "our" 
music. We glory in "our" freedom. We 
indulge in "our" luxuries, but we 
remember Irene and smile with love. 
We remember the people who sang and 
played with -us. We remember cham-

Lake Bakail. We remember Lenin 
everywhere. We remember the desert 
and the mountains and the birches. 
We remember sixteen days when we 
learned and grew.. .We remember Russia.

The Rev. Fletcher C. Lester, '18, 
was among muiiy Elon alumni who 
celebrated anniversaries in June, hut 
his anniversary was quite out of che 
ordinary. Lester was married on June 
17, 1984-his 90th birthday. His bride. 
Gertrude Dawson, was 77 years young! 
As if a wedding with a combined age 
of 167 years for the bride and groom 
were not enough, there was another 
detail that made their wedding dif- 
ferent from most. It was a surprise 

"No one knew," said Lester. "It was like 
running away to get married." 

"Only we were running into a 
crowd," his wife added, laughing. 

When Lester's two daughters planned 
3 90th birthday party for their father 
on that Sunday in 1984, they did not 
know that they were also planning a 
reception for his wedding. Only four 
people knew about Lester's wedding 
piansr his wife's son and daughter-in- 
law who flew in from Atlanta, a 
reporter from The Hij/i Point Enterprise 
and Lester's son-in-iaw, Pau! Robinson, 
who performed the ceremony, 

Lester and Mrs. Dawson had been 
dating for over a year and their 
children knew of and approved of their 
intentions to marry, but did not know 
they had specfic plans. 

Lester preached at the regular church 
service at First Congregational Chris- 
tian Church of Christ in High Point 
on June 17, 1984, and Robinson ended 
the service. 

After the closing hymn, "Blest Be 
the Tie That Binds," Robinson asked 
that the congregation remain seated. 
Then, recalled Mrs- Lester, "Fletcher 
came down the aisle, walked me to the 
front of the congregation, and we were 
married before they knew it." 

After the wedding the new Mrs. 
Lester told The Enterprise, "You don't 
have Co be young to enjoy marriagt. If 
we only have two weeks together it 
will be marvelous."
